Photographer's Note

The jhumur is a regional genre sung and played by the Mahato and Bhumij people of Purulia district. Jhumur contains both metered and unmetered sections. A typical format is to sing the verse a cappella followed by chorus repeats set to madol (a drum) accompaniment in triplets. The lyrics and music most often express the sentiment of pathos, employing a rising statement that resolves into a descending melismatic phrase.
That evening at Purulia Nistarini College, this performance of Jhumur songs were set up for the guests at a seminar. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

Full frame, reinforced, contrast and saturation raised a bit. The halation was kept dliberately.
