Note: Ramayana: performances often involve two groups of men who sing in a responsorial manner. Alan Lomax notes that the performances are accompanied by a “dholak” (barrel drum) and ghang (handheld cymbals). Each chorus sings in unison and the tempo steadily increases as the performance progresses.
