Peep Into The Folk and Modern Goan Music

Music - Goa

Music is an important part of the rich Goan culture. The people of Goa have always been known as die hard music lovers. A simple b'day party, wedding or even friends get together is incomplete without music.

  • Traditional Music : Music runs in the blood of the Goan since pre-independence times. The dholak, also called the mridanga, gumot, madlem, sarangi, tambura and veena are some of the traditional Goan instruments. Other than these the Portuguese brought the piano, the mandolin and the violin to Goa. Goan popular music is generally sung in the Konkani language. Depending on the various influences and usage of instruments the traditional Konkani Song can be categorized in four sets and can further be classified in 35 different kinds including launimm, dulpod, banvarh, zagor, dhalo etc.
  • Variations : Banvarh - A mourning song sung on day of cremation by Hindus. Dhalo - A wedding song. Dulpod - A dance song with quick rhythm and themes from everyday Goan life. Duvallo - A song sung at the pregnancy rituals of a women. Mando - A love song. Ovi and Zoti - These songs are sung at weddings by the Hindus of Goa.
  • Modern Music : Over the years the Goan music has evolved as a blend of European music, particularly that of Portugal. It has also become a home for electronic music, especially a style called Goa trance, which was created in 1960 by the hippies.
  • Finest Performers From Goa : Goa has produced some of the finest performers of Hindustani classical music like Surashri Kesarbai Kerkar. The nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosale are also Goan natives. Several pop stars like Remo Fernandes are from the tiny state Goa.
