Reviving the 'Dhaki' tradition with live performances

By establishing a "Jalongi Agomoni," campaign, the fish and seafood supply chain startup 'Jalongi' organised a multi-city live Dhaki performance across pandals to promote this disappearing art and raise awareness of it among the younger generation.

"Dhaki, as a tradition will be lost to the coming generations, as many of these performers are now looking at other employment options to survive. We will be felicitating and awarding Dhaki's based on their performance that will be based on audience ratings," says Dippankar Halder, Founder of Jalongi.

The organisation has planned live performances across Bangalore, Kolkata, Thane, Pune, Hyderabad, Delhi (Dwarka) and Gurgaon.
