Dr. Jyotsna Kamat Introducing the Tradition of Wedding Songs
Ovis being Sung by Women at a Wedding
This is the amazing story of one thing leading to another thing. First there was the first of its kind (Konkani book using two different scripts) book documenting an oral tradition. It was rendered into an audio-cassette which was a sell-out. Then a CD was released. Visuals were recorded during a wedding and now this broadcast.
If Konkani weddings will re-feature these songs, Amma and Basti Vaman Shenoy should get much of the credit for restoring a waning tradition.
