Abstract

Odisha has a glorious tradition of music and dance is evident from the singing and dancing figures adorning temples in Odisha. The Odissi dance form which originated here is one of the oldest classical dance forms of India. Religion and music has marked a strong influence on the culture of Odisha. Followers of all religions and sect today live in harmony in Odisha, their magnificent journey of being ruled by the rulers of many religions have imbibed the qualities of tolerance amongst them. The intimate relationship experienced between the poetry and music in Odissi is a feature on which the aesthetics of the style is built. The musical accompaniment of Odissi dance is essentially the same as the music of Odisha itself. Heritage in Odisha has always been preserved, through art, culture, customs and traditions.
