Lali

This popular Rajasthani song relates to a tale narrating the adventures of Lali, a young girl. The song does not include complete phrases; the musician entwines key words with the flute melody, which describe her beauty along with the herd of camel she watches over. It is played on narh using the technique known as 'gur', which involves simultaneous vocalisation while playing.
