1. Performing Art(Abstract Noun) a folk dance from the Indian state of Assam related to the festival of Rongali bihu. This joyous dance is performed by both young men and women, and is characterized by brisk dance steps,and rapid hand movement. Dancers wear traditionally colorful Assamese clothing.The Bihu dance is performed in conjunction with traditional Bihu folk music, played with: the "dhol", similar to a drum; the mohor singor pepa, a pipe instrument made from a buffalo horn; the tala, a cymbal; the gogona, a reed and bamboo instrument; and the toka, a bamboo clapper. The songs (bihu geet) that accompany the dance have been handed down for many generations. The subject of the lyrics ranges from welcoming the Assamese new year to describing the daily life of a farmer, from historical references of invasions to Assam to contemporary socio-political commentary in a satirical way. অসমত ৰঙালী বিহুৰ লগত সংগতি ৰাখি পৰিৱেশন কৰা এটা লোকসাংস্কৃতিক অনুষ্ঠান৷ এই নৃত্যত ল’ৰা-ছোৱালীয়ে অসমীয়া পৰম্পৰাগত সাজ-পাৰ পিন্ধি একেলগে যোৰাপাতি কোনো মুকলি পথাৰত নৃত্য কৰে৷ ঢোল, তাল, পেঁপা, গগণা আদিৰ তালে তালে বিহুগীত গাই সকলোৱে আনন্দ কৰে৷
