Write a couple of paragraphs about any of dancing cultures or traditions in your community.


Kaura, also known as Kauda, is a folk dance. It is believed to have been started in the Magar community. It is also performed by the Gurung, Darai and Dura communities. Kaura is performed from Mid-January to mid- February during celebration of various festivals. It is also performed during marriage ceremony, rice feeding ceremony and naming ceremony. It is associated with its distinct costume, musical instruments, and rhythms.

Kaura was used to sing by Magar people while bringing wood and grass from the jungles to let others to know that they were there. One of the specialties of Kaura is that performers introduce themselves and ask about other's well being through the songs. Some express their concern that Kaura is losing its originality due to commercialization and external influence. Others are more optimistic thinking the changes are a natural part of the cultural evolution and increasing popularity.
