Sound, fury, song, dance and banquets on the largest river island in India
The rhythmic thump of dhols resounded around me as a group of young women danced in two rows on a stage made of bamboo sticks, whose edges were draped in red and yellow silk. Performing the folk gumrag, the dancers’ hands moved from their sides to their hips, in synchronization with the sound of the dhol, resembling the fluttering of a butterfly at one point and the reaping of paddy at another. Moments later, the troupe paused for a break.
