The Murias are the people who belong to the Muria Tribe and reside in the Northern part of Bastar district. The Murias are trained and taught several community dances in the Ghotul. As per the culture and tradition of this clan, the Murias first worship their drum before performing the dance. They basically dance and sing during some occasion and festivals. A colourful picture of the performing arts of Madhya Pradesh can be observed during marriages in the household of the clan. Before performing any dance or song the Murias pray to the ‘Lingo Pen’, who is the founder of the Ghotul institution and is regarded as the phallic deity of the tribe.
