The book Tribal Dance and Songs presents a panoramic view of the classical world of the performing arts and folk literature of tribals. It gives some details about the traditional tribal theatre and exposes the cultural contents of the songs which are composed and sung spontaneously on community level. The whole community participates in it. The book includes a study of four prominent tribes from Maharashtra and one nomadic tribe. These are the Gonds, Pardhans, Kolam, Korku and the Banjara. The aesthetic beauty of the tribal dances and sentiments contained in their songs give some idea of the tribal genre. Most of these have been studied by the authors while working among the tribes included in this book. The dependence of the tribal communities on Nature and their perception about the visible as well as invisible powers pervading Nature are also discernible in the folk-songs. The study shows an undercurrent of a unity of culture, not only amongst the tribes studied but between the tribals and their counterparts in the so-called mainstream culture. Printed Pages: 204.
