Culture of Meghalaya

Song, dance and rhythm permeate the souls of the people of Meghalaya. They are people who live their lives to the rhythm of nature and the beat of tribal drums. Today, the educated youth have almost said goodbye to their tribal lineage and the state is western in the way it dresses, sings and speaks.

The Garo women are expert at weaving. The "Dakbanda", a kind of saree, is decorated with woven designs. Other crafts of Meghalaya include intricate bamboo and cane work.
