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.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
