The Folk-Songs of Southern India
The Folk-Songs of Southern India
Description
From the back of the Book

'There is no better way of discovering the real feelings and ideas of a people than that afforded by the songs that pass from lip to lip in their streets and markets'.
Charles E. Gover

It is almost impossible to come across the early Dravidian folk literature that has not been systematically corrupted or mutilated by the onslaught of Puranic legends and the Brahminical influence. This book attempts to fathom the feelings of the masses by gathering the folk-songs of the Dravidian people. These songs belong to the plains where dwell the Tamil and Telugu people; the Mysore plateau, the home of the Kannada-speaking; hills and valleys of Nilgiris and the Western Ghats, sheltering the tribes of Coorg and the Badagas of Udagamandalam and the low-lying, coastal Kerala that divides the Ghats from the sea. The samples given herein are examples of the excellent vernacular literature that existed during the Dravidian Augustan period.

The Folk-Songs of Southern India

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
