The Dholki or Dholak celebration takes its name from the percussion instrument Dholki, which is featured heavily during this wedding celebrations. Traditionally, many days, or even weeks before the actual wedding day, women will gather in the house of the bride at night, to sing and dance while accompanied by percussion instruments. Today, this ceremony has also been reduced to a single night of singing and is often combined with Mehndi or Henna ceremony.
