Panthi Dance, Chhattisgarh (Eastern India)
4th October 2010

Panthi dance is the most popular ritual of the Satnami community of Chhattisgarh. Followers of Guru Ghasidas, the Satnamis instal the idol of Jaitkham on special occasions or festivals, and sing and dance in praise of “the true name of the Guru.”
Groups of men dance in different formations to various rhythmic tunes played on the mandar drum and the jhanjh. The dancing commences with slow movements to the accompaniment of a song led by the leader of the group, while the rest follow the refrain. The tempo increases gradually, climaxing with vigorous quick-paced movements interspersed with occasional characteristic pyramid-like formations made by the dancers.
Artist of Panthi Nritya Mandir, Jarwai are performing the Panthi dance.
