One song from album Chakpa Abdri Yekhou Jagoi – Eshei. This Manipuri folk dance is accompanied by two pena players. The pena players don’t use a standardized key, just a natural harmony to go along with their singing. The dance and the song are about the Langmeiching, which is a mythical mountain significant in the Meetei religion. There is a belief that the Meeitei people originate from this mountain. This is a place that they worship. This dataset includes a transcription of the song and a translation into English.
