Assamese Bihu celebrated in UK

Dhol r Seu Outdoor 3Assam’s Bihu is no longer confined to the State alone. After Bihu performances started in Delhi and Bangalore at the behest of the Assam Association, Bihu was celebrated for the first time this year in British households. The initiative taken by Back2Music and Bordoichila Bihu Goshti was aptly titled ‘Axomor Huchori Britishor Suburit’.

Needless to say, the emotional quotient of every Assamese peaks during the time of Bihu. As such, ‘Axomor Huchori Britishor Suburit’ was a perfect attempt to showcase Bihu huchori in British courtyards. It was also a noble attempt to have an interaction with the Britishers and showcase the rich culture and traditions of the people of Assam. The event also helped market Assam as a potential tourist destination.

Bihu in British Suburi

The organisers went a step ahead by linking it up with the analogy of door-to-door carol singing as the huchori troupes visited British households in the neighbourhood. One of the promoters said, “The response was simply brilliant. They were impressed with our traditional attire, our drum beats, our food and everything related to Bihu. We plan to make it a regular event from now on.”
