The dances have adopted the LEgii elements of the elite culture, they express the same rites which they have digested from the harmony of all, through the dance music.
Race-folk dances are the best tool to instill discipline in young men and women, to ignite vitality and to instinctively build a toned body, in which there is more joy than fatigue. “
– Jaimal Parmar
In Gujarat folk dances, if there is a labor-oriented dance that has nothing to do with a festival, festival or religion, it is just a commentary dance. Which is the only folk dance in India associated with the actual functioning of daily labor. In which the black labor of life, the relentless fatigue and the drops of sweat in the form of music, rhythm and dance transformation is done. “
Commentary dance is the art of getting pleasure from labor and extending fatigue. The culture of iron and cement did not begin until the pavilions of temples and palaces and happy families began to be paved in the mandis, at which rate the ground floor of the continents was reinforced with well-baked limestone, gravel and various viscous materials mixed with limestone red. Being created. To make this layer of lime very solid and permanent strong, the layer is dripped on behalf of the wood, the ground floor which is called ‘cho’ is beaten by this process, it becomes smooth and smooth like abhala. Till ‘Do’ is carried. This floor was called ‘Prabo’. To beat is to drip, to be pressed standing up from a gradually evolving ritual, to fit more people at once so that the full size in a wooden peg brides or grooms were inlaid. This tool is the same ‘comment’ tool. It is called a commentary when thick pieces of wood, three inches wide and the same size, are inlaid in the chests or thick sticks. ”
Starting from 1 corner, only Raj-2 had to be tipped. If the probe is cut with the same weight and the same size, then the floor is dripped uniformly, more people drip for it at the same time, but if they comment back and forth, that is, if they do not comment at the same time, the man’s head will turn again due to its shock. Therefore, the sisters who make the commentary stand in a circle or at equal distances and make a statement. In some places the same weights and measures were used to make the same commentary in order to tip the comment very carefully and accurately. When the rhythm of eight or sixteen concluding remarks is tied, the music is automatically produced where the rhythm and the rhythm are tied, thus, the operation of picking babo lasted for many days. Doing the same tap tap tap creates a boring situation, which the sisters start singing songs, rasada, ballads to get rid of, the rhythm must be met with comments. Reduce fatigue from working with singing
Feel free to get bored and pass the time easily. Then the speed of the comment and its rhythmic shock kept increasing and decreasing as Baba-dhaba matured. Babo had to be tapped at night as well as during the day, so slowly the drums also came into it. the comment dance started from the move.
Nartan (Nartan Knitting):
Comments have to show strength for hours. That is why the organ acting that was created by the dripping of the commentary became the same zeal and enthusiasm. Only if there is strength can the limbs be given such a light, if only a gentle jerk can be given and a beautiful dance can be created by twisting the limbs with strange strength. a
Sisters commenting are usually arranged in two rows. Then slowly moving, the comment begins and the sisters standing in a circle or in front of each other comment with the rhythm of Zanz, Manjira. The dance of commentary begins with the song and drums from the different moves, the sisters commenting with both hands when lifting and lowering, the left hand is pushed with a twist and with the comment of the right hand, a beautiful limb is formed from the movement of the body.
There are about twenty moves in the commentary, in which the commentary is played on its side by rotating the comment back and forth, mainly in a circular motion. Even in that, a rhythm of comments fell to the ground
Does not live without. In it the low-increasing speed velocity is taken into account. The front, the back, the sides, the hemispheres, the rounds are interspersed with the limbs in different ways during the time between one comment and the other. The uniqueness of this dance is its unparalleled rhythm, fast pace, lightning speed movement and the rising joy of the rhythm of the art despite the labor. Comment The unbreakable bond of harmony between speed, rhythm and beat in a dance is rarely found in other dances. Commentary is the proud folk dance of Gujarat.
