According to the Biologist, Man is the product of an evolutionary process. In early days of evolutionary discussions, bitter controversies existed on anatomical and physiological Man because the misconceptions had arisen in the past and they still arise from the wrong usages of the terms ‘Man’ and human in deciding the evolutionary origins.
Man differs from other living species on the grounds of his culture which means gradual training and refinement of mind, tastes and manners. The conditions of being trained and being refined, have varied from house to house, village to village, state to state and finally country to country and have become an interesting phenomena for diversified study. Folk Music is a very important and integral medium of culture, being a genuine document of rustic ways of life. It is a spontaneous depiction of the local culture and is a living art.
It is true that folk music is non-academic and less disciplined in form but then its perpetual expressions of joy, sorrow, traditions and beliefs, without losing their continuity, is a very edifying experience. The tribal melodies and the folk rhymes have partially been damaged owing to urban influences, and also, on account of the encroachment of film music. Today they need revitalization with new themes relating to sentiments and aspirations of the people in the existing social, political and economic conditions.
