Title Review

The book studies the cultural traditions, folk performing arts and traditions of North India, focusing on the states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Discussing the importance of cultural and art traditions as a rich storehouse of legends, myths, customs and beliefs, it discusses the cultural traditions of various communities. It takes up aspects of theatre and other performing arts in the states in general before delving into the various folk dances and traditions, role of songs and use of musical instruments in dances. It emphasises on the need to encourage the efforts of folk artists and provide them employment to resuscitate the art traditions.
