The largely rural Indian diaspora in Trinidad traditionally placed great importance on ceremonial folk songs. Passing down these oral traditions is important in maintaining Indian philosophy and values. This book chronicles life-cycle ceremonies and festivals with their songs. Includes 222 songs in Devanagari script, followed by English translations.
