Butterfly Dance

Bagurumba is the folk dance of indigenous bodo tribe of Assam. The Bagurumba dance is also called 'butterfly dance' because its steps resemble the movement of butterflies.  This dance is characterized by slow steps and graceful outstretch of hand holding colorful dokhona (a piece of cloth unique to bodo culture). Accompanied by rhythmic music, while performing the dancers hop and swing, bend and unbend, and sometimes strike poses to resemble a butterfly.
