映画 Bajirao Mastani で人気の曲 Pingaですがお祝い事や行事の時に踊られる民謡のようですね。


Pinga" is a ceremonial activity that is performed by Maharashtrian (typically Brahmin) married women on the occasion of Mangalagaur. Mangalagaur, celebrated on a Tuesday (Mangalvar) in Shravan(August), is typically a women-only function and is very significant for new brides. It includes doing pooja of shiva praying for the well being and good health of their husband an family, good food and several game-like activities like the Pinga dance, fugdi, jhimma and others.
