Enjoy a live performance of Khuju Luyang

Traditionally, festivals during a particular time of the year in Bhutan call for dancing on regional, religious and folk songs in typical masks and attire. However, you can now enjoy this performance of Khuju Luyang, a troupe of 12, which takes to public spaces in Thimphu or even graces private shows to give the visitors a look and feel of their centuries-old culture. The dance performance is accompanied by singing and the use of traditional instruments like Yangchen (dulcimer), Lym (bamboo flute) and nga (drums). The troupe’s work is preserving their rich cultural heritage of folk dance and songs, some of which are listed as UNESCO’s Intangible Heritage.
