Book Description

About the Book
The Santals comprise the single largest tribal community in India. Though spread across the eastern states-Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and beyond - they yet form a distinct geography and culture.

The Santals are best known outside their community for their rich and distinct seren-enec or song-dance traditions. There is an intimate relationship between music, dance, musical instruments, language and performance within a particular setting and socialization. The book documents these musical traditions and their expression in a changing landscape.
