RAVANA-RAAVAN-ASSAM-MASK-RABHA-COMMUNITY.jpg

Craftsmen assemble the wooden mask of the demon King Ravana -Raavan,   used during the

'Bharigan'

 the Assamese folk theatre.

Performed by the tribal Rabha community, Bharigan songs are adaptations of the Ramayana.

While Sri Madhava Kandali's version is popular in Assam, the Bharigan adapts other versions too.

NIKASI SEMAU

Photo Johan Reinhard

*

Images taken of religious ceremonies & shamanism while the author was carrying out ethnographic research among the Purbia Raji

in

1969-70 and in parts of 1975-76. 

At that time the Raji still lived in the Babai River Valley before being moved out by the government to near 

the Indian border in order to make room for Bardia National Park. 

The Raji are a Tibeto-Burman speaking tribe that had taken up agriculture in the forested foothills.

Tribal Arts in India:

GN Devy

Project Director

Bhasha Research and Publication Center

**************

" This Inventory, if not an exhaustive listing of the rich diversity of the materials, is nonetheless a definite invitation for researchers and institutions engaged in conservation of tribal culture for a future exploration.

The present volume is the base-line inventory and, it is hoped, will be followed by supplementary volumes in the future.”
