Banra Banri

Banra Banri

The wedding ceremony has given rise to a multitude of festive songs in all regions of India which are sung to celebrate beauty, youth, romance and manifest tease and flirtations or commemorate certain specific rituals.  Banra- the groom and banri- the bride is the frequently used terms in the renditions which deal with varying themes such as a bride’s complaint, a sister-in-law's taunts, a wife’s request for a new dress, a trip that a couple decides to make crossing the dunes of the Thar etc. In the compositions presented here, the tone is joyous, gains tempo towards the end and emotion is always of enjoyment and happiness. The album at hand is quintessentially folk in terms of its rhythms, simplistic lyrics, and the colorful cultural thematic.
