What makes the Kumaoni Holi unique?

The rich culture of Kumaun with music and songs played during Holi makes the Kumaoni Holi a distinct one in India.

The Baithki Holi and Khari Holi are based on the songs which have touch of melody, fun and spiritualism. Every night almost a month before from Holi you can hear the villagers sitting next to the fire and singing special Holi Songs in Kumaoni Language. Just one week before the Main Holi, Khari Holi starts with people standing up to dance and sing.

 

Holi Songs can be divided into two parts Bhakti Parak (Devotional or Spiritual) and Shringar Parak (Beauty and fun oriented)
