This dance type named after the accompanying Jhoomar songs
is prevalent between the 'Mahanta' and 'Munda' communities of the
Sundargarh district. Among the Mahantas only the men perform the dance.
Among the Mundas the singers who accompanying the dancers sing songs and the dancers follow them in chorus in accompaniment of "Madal". The Mundas are especially experts in this dance particularly in intricate footstep, movement of hip and wrists and movement of body.
