Giddha is a popular folk dance of women in Punjab region of India. The dance is often considered derived from the ancient dance known as the ring dance and is just as energetic as bhangra, at the same time it manages to creatively display feminine grace, elegance and flexibility.The dance is followed by rhythmic clapping and a typical traditional folk song is sung by the aged ladies in the background.
Women stand in a circle formation and clap rhythms. A lead woman will recite a boli (lyrics) with a refrain that the entire circle then repeats. The whole form of a giddha song is worked through in this call and response form. Giddha details stories of women's lives, including marriage, sexuality, domestic life, and homesickness.
Traditionally women used to wear salwar kameez in the bright colours and jewellery. The attire is completed by dressing the hair in two braids and folk ornaments and wearing a tikka on the forehead.
