Abstract

Ethnically and linguistically the Korku belong to the Munda, although theylive far away from any other Munda group. Some of the Korku groups have been strongly influenced by their Hindu environment while others have been able to preserve their traditional customs, especially their language. One ofthese groups is the Potharia Korku who live on the southern side of the Vindhya Mountains in central India. The thirty songs introduced here were collected in the late 1970s among this Korku group. They are of linguistic interest because their language is largely uninfluenced by other Indian languages. Furthermore, the songs are of ethnographic interest since they illustrate various aspects of village life and of human relationships. They are about children's games, about the longing of lovers for each other and the anxieties of brides, about village customs and the villagers' relations with members of other castes and with wandering mendicant saints.
