History of Bihu Detail

The Bihu Dance is a folk dance that hails from the Indian state of Assam. It is associated with the festival of the north-east state known by the same name, that is, the Bihu festival which is celebrated thrice. The three primary Bihu festivals are the Rongali Bihu, Kogali Bihu and the Bhogali Bihu.

The Bihu dance is mostly performed on the occasion of the Rongali Bihu which is the Spring festival celebrated during the middle of April. This festival is considered to be the merriest and most colourful of the three. The Rongali Bihu marks the advent of the New Year of the agricultural calendar. It is the ‘seeding’ time and therefore, a time when people of all castes and creed come together and pray for a bountiful harvest throughout the coming year.

Although the Bihu dance has been in practice from times immemorial, the origin is not known. Earliest traces of the dance can however be seen in the records of Ahom King Rudra Singha under whose rule a performance of the dance was first recorded in 1694. On this year, the Rongai Bihu was celebrated in the Ranghar fields where the dance was put for show.

Today, the Bihu dance is not just nationally recognized but its uniqueness has led it to gain fame all over the world. So much is the popularity that a group of professional Bihu dancers were invited to perform on the occasion of the London Olympics in 2012. The dance team of professional Bihu dancers led by Ranjit Gogoi has also performed on various international platforms.
