Notes

Jalakeli is a cycle of songs sung in classical Manipuri sankirtana style by the royal women descendants of Maharaja Narasingh of Manipur (1792-1850). The songs praise Lord Krishna and Lady Radha as they come out to play with water at a fountain. Performance of the Jalakeli is seen as an offering and an act of worship. This traditional women's ritual performance was by the two choirs of the Shree Shree Govinda Jiu Jalakeli Pala.

This video is a part of THE JALAKELI PROJECT, Imasi Foundation's web-based, digital, Manipuri women's oral history initiative framed by the Jalakeli women's ritual performance.
