The word means a lover or a beloved and is said to be connected with Jhoomar.
Jhoomar is a female dance form. Both men and women sing and dance to Jhoori.
It is a dance performed in the open and describes extra-marital love.
It is very popular in Sirmaur and Mahasu areas and has a special rhythm
of its own. Each piece has four lines and the last syllable in the first
line is pronounced in a drawn-out fashion. The Jhoori songs place a great
importance on the rhyming pattern within the song.
