Pinechumi Konwar | Bharat Das | Darpana Saikia


Abstract: There are many people who have come to Assam from different states of India and have their own culture and songs. The diverse cultural resources of the tea tribal community, one of the largest ethnic groups in Assam, have added to the diversity of Assamese culture. The tea people have been living in the tea plantations of the Brahmaputra and Barak valleys for a long time and are an essential part of the Assamese society. The tea community has its own identity despite embracing the Assamese language and culture. They have made their mark in the society with their songs and words. The folk songs performed at various folk festivals in the cultural life of the tea community reflect the colorful, festive artistic aspect of their life. Among such folk festivals are those celebrated in different seasons. These basic ceremonies of the tea workers have the main elements of the Austro - Mongolian culture of Assam. These are the issues discussed in this paper "Seasonal Festivals Ceremonies of the Tea Tribal Society of Assam - A Study"
