Associated with the cult of 'Krishna Leela' has a deep
religious flavour. People in the village communities in certain parts of
Orissa join in singing and dancing
to the accompaniment of 'Mridanga' and 'Cymbals'.
This is performed particularly on the occasion of 'Holi' and 'Rasa Purnima'. Different episodes of Krishna legend are performed in 'Leela'. Through the chanting of songs and dancing to its tune in accompaniment of the musical instruments a serene atmosphere is created.
