Kheora

Kheora is a form of folk entertainment which is a high-pitch singing usually performed at weddings and festivals.

Two groups sit on the terraces of two different houses and in the solitude of the night, converse with each other through metrical compositions- a unique setting, so different from a regular stage. Most of the compositions are sung in popular tunes. The most appropriate time for such performances is the earlier part of moonlit nights. Sometimes Kheora singing lasts through the whole night.
