The Tribal Rhapsodies
: In stock
This album ‘Tribal Rhapsodies’ attempts to capture the essence of some indigenous tribes of Rajasthan the cultural complexity of whom is on the verge of extinction as an interconnected world cannot incorporate quaint realms without transforming them and at times unrecognizably so. The tribes such as the Meenas, Saharias, and Bheels bring to their music a particular understanding of how their lives and their forefather’s existence was fashioned by the ecology they have inhabited over centuries. This compilation of tribal music showcases their celebration of love, peace, marriage, childbirth, and death. The tribal instruments featured on the album: Mashak, Nagadi, Jhanjhar, Madal, Dholaki, Chimta, Chhota Dhol, Rawanhatta etc. are symbolic of a rustic yet evolved understanding of sound and rhythm.
