Hello Friends, You all must have seen TARPA dance in most of the warli paintings ;today i am going to share brief information on TARPA. One of the central striking aspect of many warli painting is the "Tarpa dance"- the tarpa, a trumpet like instrument, made from bamboo and seeds of pumpkins and the holes are made so that different notes can be played somewhat like a pipe flute.
Men and women entwine their hands and move in a circle around the tarpa player.The dancers follow the tarpa player, turning and moving as he turns, never turning their back to the Tarpa. The circle formation of the dancers is also said to be a resemble the circle of life.
Traditional Tarpa Dance by Warli people
This Tarpa dance is the most popular motif of warli paintings and it shows the beat, rhythm and dance are beautifully captured in warli paintings. And at the last my painting based on Tarpa dance
