Limbu Culture

The ritual of Nahangma is performed to restore Mukuma Sam of the family patriarch or matriarch (Tumyahang). A scrutiny of the essence of worship, beyond the spiritual dimension, involved in the concept of Nahangma ritual, shows that it invariably constitutes the domain over which the family’s authority extends and on which its livelihood is based.
Ethnic Limbu folksongs are called Samlo. There are many folksong genres like Palam, Hakpare and Khyali which are based on Limbu Mundhum culture and traditions.
