Music. Maati Baani. Funky Pawa

Here is what Nirali and Kartik say about this lovely song:

These are traditional Gujarati lyrics sung to invoke the Divine Mother in peoples houses and hearts. It's mainly sung in the festival of Navratri, where the people dance and sing the hymns to invite the Goddess. You must have, by now, figured out how much we are fascinated by everything folk! What charms us about the villages and the people there of is the free - spiritedness and honesty, the openness and warmth, the colours and textures and — Yes! — their ability to rise above the problems of their daily lives and still to be able to sing a song or two!
