Toranio

Toranio refers to the handmade door hanging found as a decoration in homes. As a genre, toranio is usually sung when the groom arrives to his father-in-law’s home and strikes the toran –signifying his arrival to take the bride. In this song, the King is asking the carpenter to make a beautiful sandalwood toran that will match the glow on the groom’s forehead.
