Baddi Geet - Songs of the Baddi Community of Garhwal

Various Artists
These are songs of the Baddi, an itinerant community of performers from the Garhwal Himalayas in the state of Uttarakhand. This music is performed by husband and wife duos and includes a range of contexts such as festivals, weddings and fertility rituals. The patronage for this community no longer exists thus there are now only a few families who continue to perform upon request or at state funded festivals.
