Presentation by Lok Manch (Anurag Dhara)
Artists- Kavita Wasnik and co-artists- (from Rajnandgaon)
01)- JAS-GEET-

The Nava Ratri Festival is celebrated, with great fervour in Chhattisgarh twice in a year in the month of Chaitra and Kunwaar (Ashwin), according to the Hindu Calendar. During this festival Jawara is planted in small earthen pots  and  earthen candle (Jyoti Kalash) is lighted at every temple of Goddesses like Durga, Mahamaya,Shitla- the symbol of chivalry-  situated at every place from  Bastar to Sarguja, and from Raigarh to Rajnandgaon, prominently at Ratanpur,Dongargarh, Raipur, Dantewada and Chandrapur. The jawara is immersed on the last day of the festival and all the villagers and people living in the surrounding areas, participate in this procession. Jas Geet is performed by the devotees during this nine-day festival. It is one of the extremely old traditions of this region. So here we are presenting a glimpse of this glorious tradition.
02)-  STAND-UP VERSION OF NACHA-

The tradition of Nacha- Gammat is very old in Chhattisgarh. Even today Nacha is the main mode of recreation  in the rural areas.  The “Nacha with stand-up-instrument” is the conventional method of this art-form, in which all the accompanying artists and instrument players remain stand-up through-out the show. Tabla (percussion) and Chikara (a violin-like instrument) is the main instruments in the stand-up version of Nacha. The Kaayakhandi Devotional songs (bhajans) are performed primarily in this pattern. The artists mainly perform the devotional songs (bhajans) of Kabeer, Tulsi, and Brahmanand
03)- KARMA DANCE-

This dance is performed in almost every village of Chhattisgarh. This is basically the typical dance form of the tribal communities in Chhattisgarh. The male dancers in this discipline wear conventional attire. “Maandar” is the main instrument in this art-form.
4)- GAURA FESTIVAL & TABLEAUX-

The Gaura- Gauri Festival is celebrated with traditional fervour  by the tribal community during  the Deepawali festival. Different songs describing various rituals of a marriage, including the song for the seeing-off of the bride, are performed since time immemorial in Chhattisgarh. The symbolic idols of Gaura and Gauri are prepared from the soil, accumulated from a particular place of the village. These two idols are immersed in pond or river, after the marriage ceremony. This festival is celebrated throughout the night.
05)-  RAUT NACHA (DANCE)-

The people belonging to Yadav community in Chhattisgarh, perform Raut Nacha during the Deepawali festival. Mainly the male artists perform this dance. The performers, attired in conventional rustic, also carry a long wooden stick, while reciting the couplets of Kabeer and Tulsi and then dance in groups.
06)- CHHER-CHHERA & SUWA DANCE-SONG-

The Cher-chhera is celebrated on Paush Poornima. The children go to the different houses in a locality and perform the symbolic begging. They use the food-grains, accumulated through begging, for social cause. Similarly the Suwa Dance and song is also performed during the Deepawali festival. Only females participate in this song and dance form. They keep a parrot (Suwa) in a bamboo- pot, in the centre of a circle and then perform the song and dance, moving around it with clapping. They spend the presents and gifts (received in dance)to mark the Gaura Festival. This is also one of the main dance- forms of the tribal woman folks in Chhattisgarh.
07)- DEWAR DANCE & SONG-

Dewaar is one of the rare communities of Chhattisgarh, which loves wandering. The people of this community perform a particular type of song and dance, during various festivals, which is called “Dewaar Dance and Song”. Predominantly the male participants perform the instrument recital and the females perform the dance. So here we are presenting “Dewaar Karma dance in group”.
08)- GROUP DANCE-

And here we are presenting a “Karma group dance” to mark the conclusion of this programme. The song begins with the words… “Mahuwaa Jhare Re, Mahuwaa Jhare Re”
