Our HistoryFrom where it started
Its been widely mentioned that the first Raas Group was formed in early 1950's in Bakharla, Gujarat, India. Since then many other local Raas Groups have sprouted and formed in villages across Gujarat with predominately Maher brotherhood serving as the cornerstone. Raas Groups have been showcased and perfomed by Mahers and other communities all around the world due to the fact that the Raas (Dandiya Raas) is unique in Indian history and that no other community has been able to duplicate the artistic performances.
Its well confirmed within the wider communities that Maher Raas Group in Bakharla is historically mentioned to perform the best artistic display of Dandiya Raas in the whole of Burda Vistāra and probably beyond. Long may that tradition continue.
