Bengali Tribal Art in Tepantar

A few years back I discovered Tepentar tribal theatre village, in West Bengal. Run by Ebong Amra, a repertory company formed with artists from local tribe community, it aims at preserving the roots of Santhal people arts, from music to craft. It mixes their traditional stories with classical theatre and attracts a growing number of visitors, from India and abroad, fighting its way to promote this unique genre.
