Description
From The Jacket

Konkani song of which Goan Song is a preeminent branch is a treasury of the traditional music of the India subcontinent containing as many as 34 identifiable types of song. They include the monophonic and harmonic varieties the former in existence before the Portuguese brought western music into India, and the latter consequent on the western impact. It was in Goa that Indian musicians first began to compose in western musical forms incorporating into them motifs and nuances of their own immemorial tradition.

Among the 34 types figures the Mando a dance song typically consisting of quatrains, frequently having appended choruses, set in six-four time. Its main themes are love and events (fobro) the latter social and political in nature. But its favorite theme is love oriented toward marriage where the lover yearns for union with his beloved achieves that union or laments at his failure to realize it. The love Mandos are thus of three types: yeaning (utrike, the theme of this book), union (ekvott) and lamentation (villap). The melody of the mando is uniformly melancholic but it scintillates with luminous imagery as of suns, stars, flowers and diamons. The Mando evidently originated in the 183s, but its period of high achievement extents from around 1870to 1950. it was given expression to by numerous composers, of such four are particularly remarkable: Paulo Milagres Silva (1855-1931), Arnaldo de menezes (1863-1917), Gizelino Rebelo (1875-1931)and Torquato de Figueiredo (1876-1948). As a dance the Mando, India ballo noblie, was the last aristocratic social dance created anywhere.

Goans not only initiated the Westernization of Indian music, but, from the late 19th century also pioneered in Indian ethnomusicology, providing a model for the preservation and interpretation of the rich folk music of India. The present work aspires to represent that model.

Acknowledgments

This book owes much to many people but most of all to our informants, listed in Appendix 3, provided us with much of our information on the Mando. Most of them have passed away and with them the ago of the Mando has passed into history. We also wish to acknowledge our debt of gratitude to the Instituto Cultural de Macau, for furnishing us with the score of the Mandos, and to the Fundacao Oriente and Cosme Matias Menezes Limited for sponsoring the publication of the book. Victor Rangel Ribeiro kindly corrected the errors in the next and score. George Coelho David Menezes and Paulo Varela Gomes gave us much encouragement in the course of putting the book together for which we owe them thanks. And finally, Brij Mohan Pande gave us his usual unflagging support during the time that the book was in production for this no words can adequately express our gratitude.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
