Loka Geeta

Woman singing folk songs

Folk music of Orissa is known as 'Loka Geeta’ which is not always standardized and may vary in scale, interval, tonality etc. across different regions, even though the same tune is identifiable. A folk song is inherited and perpetuated by oral tradition from one generation to another. The peculiarity of the folk song lies in the fact that every member of a community takes a more or less active part in its ceremonial function. The rhythms of the folk music, like the tunes, come almost naturally to the people, and devoid of any sophistication, they appeal to the heart directly.
