Grinding Stories Retold: Songs from Goa

Grinding Stories Retold: Songs from Goa is a sequel to the first volume and includes songs sung by the Christian Gavda community. This is an important anthropological contribution to the genre because of the fact that singing in Konkani had been banned by the erstwhile Portuguese government in the year 1684 and this wealth of oral literature went underground. This book brings the songs out into a more visible platform.
