Tusu Dance, Sunderbans

The Tusu dance form of native people of Sunderbans.

The resorts there arrange for such performances by the locals for the tourists. Performed mostly as a group, it is done mostly during the harvest festival. With simple costumes of white sari with red border, neat hairdo decorated with flowers and feathers, they looked very graceful. It was mesmerizing to see them perform rhythmically holding hands to ‘never heard before’ tribal songs. After a hectic day of touring around the islands of Sunderbans this was a wonderful treat to our tired nerves.
