Description

From The Jacket

Konkani Song of which Goan Song is a Pre-eminent branch is a treasury of the traditional music of the Indian subcontinent. It 35 types include the monophonic and harmonic varieties the former prevalent before the Portuguese brought western music into India and the latter, consequent to the western impact. It was in Goa that India musicians first began to compose in western musical forms incorporating into then motifs and nuances of their own immemorial tradition.

Among the 35 types figures the Mando a dance song typically of quatrains, often having appended choruses set in six-four time. Its main themes are love and events the latter social and political in nature. But its favorite theme is love oriented toward marriage where the lover yearns for union with the beloved achieves it, or laments his failure to realize it. The melody of the Mando is uniformly melancholic but the text scintillates with luminous imagery as of suns stars flowers and diamonds. As a dance the mando, India’s ballo nobile, was the last aristocratic dance created anywhere.

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
