Nareli Dance of Gujarat

Nareli dance belongs to the fisherman community and it is performed during the season of monsoon. The dancers get excited to dance when they find the sky is completely wrapped by the dark black blanket of clouds. The fisherman community get together the sea side and start singing short songs welcoming the rising up layers of sea water ,sea thunder and prepare a place in their hearts and and mind for welcoming their sea god. The songs and the gestures showed by the dancers are very natural and pleasing to others. The hidden belief is that the sea gods feels happy and honored and in return the god fulfills the wishes f his people.
