Many people have seen this dance in the beginning scene of the film Latcho Drom (the young woman, Suva Devi, doing barrel turns under the tree). Ghoomar (Rounding) is a group dance done in a circle often performed at wedding celebrations. Learn the actual translation along with the dance by Imamddin.
