Bizu Dance

This popular form of dance is characteristic of the Chakma community. Bizu means ‘Chaitra-Sankranti’. ‘Chaitra-Sankranti’ denotes end of Bengali calendar year. It is during this period when the Chakma sing and dance to bid good-bye to the year just being ended and welcome the New Year.

Performance— the dance is beautifully orchestrated with the rhythm playing of what is known as ‘Khenggarang’ and ‘Dhukuk’ sorts of flutes. The Chakma women are fond of flower, which they often use in their hair. They also use metal ornaments.
