Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
A decade ago I witnessed the amazing culture of Mizoram at a festival and took some photos.
Presenting some photos here once again:
Chapchar Kut is the harvest festival celebrated in Mizoram, a state of North East India. At this festival, the Cheraw or bamboo dance is performed by young boys and girls. The boys across the performance ground clap bamboos in a synchronised beat, while the girls step within the bamboo patterns created by the boys. The footwork steps change from time to time along with the beat and the girls have to be careful not to get hurt. Image taken at Aizawl, Mizoram.

Cheraw Dance stands as a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Mizoram. Its captivating beauty, symbolic significance, and rhythmic grace continue to mesmerize audiences both within and outside the state. By preserving and promoting this traditional art form, the Mizo people are not only honoring their ancestors but also sharing a piece of their vibrant culture with the world. Cheraw Dance is a treasure to behold, representing the spirit and resilience of the Mizo people and their commitment to preserving their cultural identity.
