Dandiya Raas and Garba are both traditional folk dances from Gujarat, India. Dandiya Raas is a type of traditional Gujarati dance where pairs of dancers hold a short stick in each hand and strike one another’s sticks in time to the music
Garba celebrations are held twice at the University of the West Indies. Once on the main campus during Semester One hosted by the UWI Hindu Society, and again during the second semester at Mount Hope hosted by the Movement for Encouragement of Dharmic Services. Here are pictures from the recently held MEDS Garba celebration.
