These dances describe the playfullness of Lord Krishna. Dindi is a small drum like a 'Tamate'. The musicians are gathered in the centre; a 'Mridangam' accompanied with a vocalist gives the dancers the necessary musical background.

Around the musicians, the assembled men and women dance joyfully. This is usually prformed on the Ekadashi day in the month of Kartik.On auspicious occasions like the birth of a child; dancers might hold night- long performances called gondhals. Elsewhere, rustic actors could be narrating lively stories through the bharud, an enactment of the written musical compositions of poet- saints, and singers could be crooning powadas, inspiring ballads.

The lavni performed by women, is occasionally called the queen of Marathi folk music and dance. It is incorporated in slapstik tamasha, and is possibly one of the most well-liked folk forms. Marathi theatre itself has evolved over the years, and is now a established form of communication which challenges norms and often embraces rebellious themes.
