Chhou is the name of the traditional dance-drama of the eastern regions of India. There are three distinct styles of chhou - Seraikella Chhou, Mayurbhanj Chhou and Purulia Chhou, named after three districts in the states of Bihar, Orissa and West Bengal respectively. The areas, located geographically in three separate states, are contiguous and form a Chhou belt. Seraikela and Purulia chhau performers wear masks. The themes are taken from nature (birds and animals), everyday life and Hindu mythology.
