Bauchhodo Dance-Song in Fair or Melas बौछड़ो नृत्यगीत


 Bachhaudo Nritygeet : A Garhwali  Free Style Folk Dance Song  

                                                              Bhishma Kukreti
(Traditional Folk Dance Songs of Garhwal, Traditional Dance Song of Kumaun , Traditional Folk Dance Songs of Uttarakhand)  
             The Bachhaudo dance is free style circle dance and mixer of dances as Chanchari, jhodo, Bausarela, Chhapeli and Thadya dances.  The dance absorbs the focus of dancers as happened in Punjabi Bhangda dance.Usually there are two circles of male and female dancers separately. Howver, many times, the female and male dancers dance in a single circle too.
 The dance is dedicated to Binsar Shivalay and the devotee used to dance and sing the Bachhaudo dance-song  at the courtyard of Binsar Shiva temple performed on Kartik Purnima.
  When the dance song is complete the priest sing the following ritual  song wherein the priest calls nag deities:
                             बिनसर मादेव पूजा गीत 
                 
                    बिनसर का नागो मारा बौछड़ो  
                     बिनसर का मेला मारा बौछड़ो 
                  Bauchhodo Dance-Song in Fair or Melas
People of Garhwal perform dance –sing Bachhaudo style in fairs and in many processions. The subject of Bachhaudo dance-song varies as per the situation and demand of the people. The subject may be humorous, love etc   
 The following Bachhaudo बौछड़ो  dance-song is a love song describing the beauty of abeautiful female Daunta.
                                        बौछड़ो नृत्यगीत 
मसुराळी आँखी चलौन्दी मेरी दौंता कथैं  गे 
दाथुड़ी   का छुणका बजौन्दी जब गौं का उथैं  गे
दौंता का आंख्युं मा क्या जादू भर्युं  
कनी टमकांदी आँखी नजरूंकु मौक़ा जथैं रै 
दौंता की स्या कमरी जनि कुमाळी सी ठाण 
जैका जाली दौंता वैन सट सूकी जाण 
दौंता की मुखडी मा जनि तस्बीर टंगीं  
दौंता की मायान सरा दुन्या रंगीं  
दौंता - की सी मुखडी तस्बीर मा नी  
सुकली ढाडयूँ को भलो निक्साट बतोंदे 
दौंता खडी होंदी जनी धार मा सी गैणी 
पालिँगा  सी डाळी हलै जांदी बथौं लै 
Where has twinkling her eyes my Daunta  gone ?
She gone sounding the small bells of scythe
Oh! There is immense attraction on the eyes of Daunta!
Her twinkling eyes are gorgeous  
The waist of Daunta is flexible as Kumali’s beauty
That who would marry Daunta will die by her beauty
The beauty of Daunta is on everybody ‘s eye
Everybody is colored on the love of Daunta
Her beauty can’t come on her photo or shade
The teeth of Daunta are very bright and  glittering
Daunta is as start twinkling on a hill
She is flexible as a spinach plant waves

                 The Bachhaudo  बौछड़ो नृत्यगीत  is very agile, pleasure some, attractive and free from any strict dance rules. The Hudkya (drum player, usually Badi) sings the song and play the small drum Hudka .
