The participants performing Kauraha Dance in the nation-wide dance competition in the year 1997 organised by Sadhana Kala Kendra.
It is one of the typical Nepalese folk dances on the verge of extinction. Yet efforts are under way to preserve and promote it from the government and non-government organization. As it is very popular within our border, and also hoped to have international recognition.
Especially among Magar and Gurung castes of western Nepal.
It is one of the fascinating dances performed by the youths i.e. males and females especially of Magar and Gurung castes in the western part of Nepal along with the song and dance. It has its various local names like, Kauda, Chudka and so on. It starts with the opening statement We have come from the gents' side, while entering the Rodhi Ghar, a typical Nepalese community house of a countryside.
On one hand, it is quite popular because it involves a large number of people (artists)sharing their hunger, thirst, tiredness and pains who develop friendly ties and emotional integration with one another and on the other hand, it is on the verge of extinction because of the lack of proper protection and preservation and promotion.
