The Jalakeli is a HIndu Vaishnav women's performance ritual offered by the two choirs of the Shree Shree Govinda Jiu Jalakeli Pala. The main summer ritual is held every year on Buddha Purnima, the full moon of Kalen (9 May 2017) at the Shree Shree Govindajee Temple of the Royal Palace of Manipur. It 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.

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