Ode to the Yaiphabi

Ode to the Yaiphabi (Mothers, daughter, . ) Manipuri Music Ensemble (2006)

Inhabited by different linguistic and cultural groups, our motherland has nurtured them all with love and care. Many great souls, brave and beautiful are produced. It is in praise of those Yaiphabi women – mother, daughters and sisters – who symbolize not only humanity and tenderness but also the source of courage, inspiration and perseverance, and those tender hands have moulded the life and career of those brave and beautiful souls, that we offer this short performance as a dedicated to our mothers, daughters and sisters by using some of the typical musical instruments and songs of the natives (Manipur).
