A very unknown tribal festival in India

Jawhar is a tiny tribal village which has become a dusty little town. Nothing much to do here, but it is how to various tribals of the Warli tradition and their unique Warli art and culture. On the night of Dussera, an important Hindu festival (which falls sometime in September or October, varies), tribals from close to 50 villages get together for a dance to the tunes of a native wind instrument called the 'Tarpa'.

Worth a visit. The music and dance is enchanting. Nothing as big as many Indian festivals, but interesting in its own way.
