The Tarangmel of Goa is danced on the occasion of Dussehra and Holi festivals. The youth of Goa swarm the streets in colorful groups waving flags and streamers (toning) inspiring and inviting one and all to imbibe the festive spirit. The spirited youth shout Ho ! Ho! to the rhythmic beat of the percussion music provided by Romut, Dhol and Tasha. A colorful atmosphere is created by the colorful costumes the dancers wear and the varied hues of the flags and streamers they carry.
