Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a selection of songs that were sung in Barwar. Some of these were originally composed elsewhere, notably in the Ṭiyare region, and this is reflected by the occasional occurrence of forms that are distinctive of the Ṭiyare dialects. This applies especially to the lϵliyana wedding songs and the rawe songs, which existed in rich oral traditions in the Ṭiyare region before the destruction of the communities in the First World War. The rawe songs (C2) are largely amorous in nature and are traditionally sung by men in two competing groups, usually at weddings, in alternative stanzas. Each stanza consists of three monorhyme verses.

Keywords: Barwar; lϵliyana wedding songs; monorhyme verses; rawe songs
