Fire Dance, Rajasthan

Rajasthan's Fire DanceThe Jasnathis of Bikaner and Chum are well known for their tantric powers throughout Rajasthan and this dance is the marvelous example of their lifestyle. The dance takes place on a large ground, which is spread with live wood and charcoal. On this ground, the Jasnathi men and boys jump on to the fire with the accompaniment of drum beats.

These drumbeats give a tempo for the performance. This music gradually rises & sets a dance in a fast tempo. At a certain point, it reaches at a crescendo, where the dancers seem to be in a trance like state. The dancers perform their actions as if they are blessed with a divine protection. The performance on a large bed of flaming coals is considered as a specialty of this region. These devotional & exciting performances are usually seen during the late nights of winter.

Some of the traditional folk dance of Rajasthan by the Banjara Community is also called the same. But this dance is completely different from the above-mentioned performance. Here, the dance is performed around the Fire.
