Folk Dances and Music 

of Haryana and Rajasthan 

by Mulk Raj Sidana


Every aspect of life in India inspires rural people to celebrate in one way or the other, but it manifests best in folk music and dances. The people of Haryana and Rajasthan have a striking similarity in the musical instruments and the dances they accompany. The people of both states believe in the saying: “The tribe which dances does not die.”
