  • Abstract

    1. "Boeha dupulạr": traditional Santali song praising brotherly love, complete song performed by male vocalist (song also performed on C52/1648: 1, C52/2131: 4); 2. "Coṭ cuṛa": Santali Christian song, based on a traditional Santali melody. The lyrics concern the right path to god, which is likened to a path leading through a forest in which satan dwells, posing dangers to those who walk carelessly; 3. Lagre song played on a large tiriya flute (also on C52/1647: 2, C52/2134: 2 & 3); 4. Ref tone. Reasonable quality recording.
