                 Chait month is the cultural month of Uttarakhand. Aujees play drums (Dhol Damau) three times on the courtyard of their respective Thakurs.  Performances of Aujees have been there from Khas time (before first B.C.) in Garhwal. There are nine ‘patan’ and twenty two ‘padtalen’. Nine ‘patan’ represent nine ‘nidhi’ and twenty ‘padtal’ represent eight ‘siddhi’ and fourteen ‘ bhuvan’’ There is mention of ‘Naubat’ in the folk story of Rajula Malu shahi of Khairagarh when Bijula Nayak performed  ‘Naubat’ at ‘Melchaunri’ and the princess Kamsena (sister in law of’ Malushahi’)  fell in love with Bijula Nayak.   
              Aujees sing the following types of song and play. There is same traditional song in Vietnam called ‘Quan Ho’. The tradition was started from Ly dynasty (1009-12250. The Quan song is to praise the king.
             Daragyala in Tibet is also of similar type of song. Dragyala is about ‘Song of Praise to King and queen of Tibet’. There are many folk songs in Jewish culture as the following Garhwali ‘Naubat ‘songs.
चैत माह में दोपहर समय औजियों द्वारा बजाया जाने वाला चैती नृत्य गीत

दान्युं मा को दानी
स्थाई चरण - इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
सूरिजा बंशी राजा हरीचंदा जी ..
सहायक चरण - जैका छाया सूना का छतर
छाया वैका चांदी का पतर जी . इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
जैका छाया मोत्यूं का ख्ल्याण
छाया जैका हीरों का डिसाण जी. इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी.
जैका पास छई नौऊ निधि
चरणु मा जैकी अष्ट सिद्धि जी . इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
छायो जै को पराणी उमैलो
आज वैको सरैला धुमैलो जी . इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
बलूरी आज वै की छन फ़ैली
धुंवां ला आँखी वे की मैली जी .इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
विधना की कनी या ठकुरी
राजा लायो ध्यूंरा की चाकरी . इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
दान्युं मा को दानी
इजू ! छायो दान्यूं मांग को दानी
