Dang Darbar Festival | INDIA

Dangs Darbar is a three-day annual cultural extravaganza coinciding with the Holi festivities. The festival is celebrated in the Dang district, located in the Saputara Hills of India. A conspicuous festival of Dang tribe, inhabitants of wooded region Saputara, the Dang Darbar is celebrated just few days before Holi. The exact venue of this festival is Ahwa near Saputara but the festival has drawn its name from the Ahwa Darbar, a one–time venue assembly (Darbar) venue for English ministers and mandarins during the Raj era. Now, the name has been changed to Jamabandi Durbar and the District Collector officiates at it.

A large number of tribal inhabitants and visitors come to attend one of the most colourful and attractive festivals of the Dangs during this festival. The sight transforms to bright and gung ho from dry and serene. A galore of men and women attired in riots of colour are seen agog with festivities during the Darbar. Nomad tribes carry a shehnai (wood-wind instrument) and other musical instruments with them.
