Dances Of Punjab ....::::JHULLI & DHAMAAL::::....

....::::JHULLI & DHAMAAL::::....

Julli is a religious dance associated with Pirs and recluses and is generally danced in their hermitages (khangahs). This dance is performed mostly in a sitting posture; sometimes it is also danced round the grave of a preceptor. A single dancer can also perform this dance. Toes are tensed in this dance. The dancer holds a thick staff in his hands and he dances by revolving it. Normally black clothes are worn by the dancer, so is his head covered with black scarf. Sometimes, the murids (followers) also the tie ghungroos (Jingling bells) around their waists like the Bhangra dancers of yore. This dance is fast disappearing.....

Dhamaal is similar to bhangra and is danced by men in a circle.This folk dance also has not been able to achieve the popularity of Bhangra. Of course it is a male dance and, likewise, is danced in a circle. Drum is used as the accompanying instrument; its costumes are akin to Bhangra and Jhumar...
