Dravidian Dithyramb

| /
Andre de Quadros / Victor Paranjoti
SATB a cappella
The Dravidian Dithyramb embodies traces of ragas from the Carnatic music of South India, but it also bears an astonishing resemblence to the tarana - a form of Hindustani classical music which uses Persian and Arabic phonemes as nonsense syllables.  See also M-24: ttbb and S-179: ssaa
