Sua Geet refers to songs sung and performed by women in Chhattisgarh celebrating the time of harvest. Women sing songs in a circle, at the center of which is usually placed a basket carrying harvested grain and a wooden figure of a parrot. The songs are sung to the beat of the clapping of hands, unaccompanied by any instruments. Groups of women visit the homes of landowning families and collect harvest grains. Sua Geet is a regional performative tradition.
