A Warli Christmas

A COLLECTION OF HYMNS BY WARLI CHILDREN

Wendell D'Cruz S.J.


Two years ago, the children of Gnanmata Adivasi High School, Talasari, had composed these hymns, set them to popular tunes, accompanied by traditional dance steps, all as part of their Christmas celebrations. The hymns are produced here in the original, with a summary translation in English, and an accompanying set of illustrations done in Warli Art style.
