Husori is performed in the courtyards of villagers, which may have started during the Ahom rule. Initially it was performed in the courtyard of Rangghor to entertain the king, then moved to the courtyards of officials and, finally, it gained popularity with the villagers as well. During the period when Vaishnavism was dominant, Husori assimilated the flavour of spirituality in its repertoire. The existing structure of Husori is a legacy of that form. Performed by Nimaijan Husori Dal
