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.
