Dear All,
Thank you for the appreciation.

For those who disapprove of the stage, here is a link that should make you appreciate the joy of sharing folk music.

In my view spirituality is subjective and personal and I find God in music from any culture, time or style. And I would not go as far to judge your religious boundedness. I am an anthropologist and welcome you to think critically at traditions and practices.

Folk music, especially that of the lower castes, which was out of bounds in the colonial times and sadly, considered profane by many religious. It is important to know that colonial missionaries did take folk tunes and changed the words to attract indigenous people to church in India and South America (ref: Baroque music of South America). They also took their folk instruments like pan flutes to church. In India, they embraced the music and instruments of the Brahmins - tabla, harmonium etc and left out that which was closest to the people - the ghumat!

Even within the church, what was allowed as 'sacred' changed. From only allowing the human voice (acapella choirs) to allowing the pipe organ only as accompaniment and then moving to including folk instruments like the fiddle in the form of the violin family with horns and flutes finally. Today it is electronic instruments. Times change and definitions change. A rolling stone does not catch moss!

Well Matilda ,I had strongly disapproved the stage for this video. I informed Virgil Sequeira the composer to this effect. I posted this video on this site just to get comments from our communities. Many supported this 'seemingly popular' move. I opened a dialogue disapproving the very Stage set in the Church. Some tried to defend (including Mr Virgil Sequeira) & justify BUT I STRONGLY OPPOSED TO THIS BY QUOTING ARTICLES FROM 'DON BOSCO' MAGAZINE. I also gave my opinion .You can follow 'BOTTLE MASALA' comments dated 20th March 2012 get an insight. I am glad that you have opened this topic & invite members to have their comments.Once again let me tell you Matilda that I entirely agree with you..God bless.....NB; Please be a member of this EI site with your credentials including a Photograph Thanks!

Such a disgrace to our community, dance in the church? or is this a stage? What a disgrace, no reverence left in our hearts for Our Lord who is present in the tabernacle. Did you'll not find any other place to perform or have you'll abandoned Our Lord and the Devine Faith we believe in......... no likes from this East Indian.

Dear Greg, We often confuse Importance of something with it's usefulness. Only if we apply ourselves to its importance does it become useful. I would not look for something that is lost in a shop that sells light-bulbs just because it is bright there! I need to look for it where I lost it...
I see no wrong in performing in church - I have seen more disrespect bought to the faith by 'perfect' churchgoers living an opposite life once they are out of church compound.. If you live a good life then even your home is your church.
I see happy people performing in church in this video.... Happy people can truly sing praise to the Almighty... whatever the words may be, whatever the song may be..!!!
If you get a chance - read 'The Prayer of the Frog' by Fr. Anthony DeMello SJ. I hope it will help you as much as it helped me.
In the meantime ... let the Ghumat play... and sing your heart out.
