GUWAHATI, December 18, 2017: A two-day cultural extravaganza is being organised in Assam’s Dima Hasao hill district, where one can enjoy song and dance by local residents after savouring the amazing Dimasa delicacies along with rice brew.
The ‘Judima Festival’ at Haflong will also showcase the scenic beauty of the hill district, home to flora and fauna and breathtaking waterfalls, on December 28-29, besides rock concert, dance performance, ballad singing, storytelling and traditional sports, the organisers said in a press release.
The festival is named after ‘Judima’, the traditional rice brew of the Dimasa community, which is unique in taste, method of preparation, and is an integral part of the Dimasa social life.
Apart from being a symbolic celebration of the rich cultural artefacts of the district, the festival aims to initiate the idea of an alternative livelihood to the local brewers and tourism among the ethnic groups residing in the district.
