Ram Bhajans

At Ramayana Festival in Adishakti on the evening of Ram bhajans they tried to bring together Manganiar and Meghwal singers, originated both from Rajasthan and they interpreted musically Ram bhajans differently. Bhajans are rarely sung on the modern stage and have been relatively neglected. In the Manganiar repertoire are generally sung for patrons on the occasion of a marriage or for other ritual occasions. Megeasl and Maganiars ted to sing bhajans during the ratijaga or night-long ritual singing of devotional songs, in addition to other traditions like the olakhs, which are sung in praise of deities.
