Celebrate a Milestone: Lokgeet (Folksongs)

Mirasi minstrels. Moradabad. 1870

Mirasi minstrels. Moradabad. 1870

The fourth instalment is all about folk songs (lok geet). Herein you will find instrumental music from western India, chants from the Himalayas, bhajans sung by southerners and beautiful contemporary Bengali folk music. Pakistani genius Hamid Ali Bela appears in a special a cappella performance of a traditional sufi hymn and the Shyam Brass Band takes time off from its busy wedding season to give us a fine rendition of another folk song as old as the desert dunes of Rajasthan.

Hope you enjoy it!
