Navratri / Garba /dandiya songs

So, I have got myself tasked with getting a CD ready for the Garba/dandiya we are planning for the weekend. I could only think of 2 or 3 songs which wouldnt last more than 10 minutes and I have to fill in 3 hours!

I have looked on youtube and it brings up songs from DJs. They dont seem to be famaliar and have different tunes for same songs....

who better than ask my friends on here then. Can you please suggest songs - preferably from films for non-gujju folks to dance on dandiya/garba?

the first one I thought was Amitabh starrer - Sab se bada tera naam... then... not many others.

Re: Navratri / Garba /dandiya songs

dholi taro and nagada - I am guessing I need special versions of these songs? the ones in the movie dont seem to be usable for the purpose.

Re: Navratri / Garba /dandiya songs

I'm yet to understand dandiya/garba.. navratri has only dance and music or actual prayers as well?

I'm afraid there may not be enough filmi, non-gujju songs to last you for that long. I did find an okayish dandiya collection a few days ago on the Saavn app, but ended up skipping every other song. That might be your best chance. Go to saavn.com and search for Dandiya.

The dandiya/garba you are referring to is the commercialized version, where people pay money to enter a dance party with a live performance that includes fancy musical instruments.

The traditional version of Gujarati Garba is mainly worshipping Maa Amba (Goddess Durga). There's more spiritual vibe to it. The main, and usually the only, instrument played is Dhol, and a small group of folk singers lead the songs while people performing Garba act as the chorus.

There are several variations of garba types, and usually in the following order:
- the night begins with a "be taali" (2 taali/claps) garba
- followed by "tran taali" (3 taali/claps)
- followed by Aarti & prasad
- followed by a few minutes of hinch (a very specific type of dance performed in smaller groups)
- followed by "Dandiya Raas". Dandiya Raas is more associated with Krishna... more so than Maa Amba.

All of the garba (except for hinch) are performed in one big circle around the photos of the Gods/Goddesses in the center.

Different communities, societies, temples used to do their own little garba. When I was little, I remember that a group of about 50 households would put Maa Amba's photo on a chair, under a lamppost on an internal, non-busy street, some uncle would play dhol, and all neighbors would sing garba songs as they do garba around the chair. Mostly moms/ladies, boys and girls would do garba, kids would run around and play games, men would gossip and talk about daily lives/general stuff. Good times

In commercialized version, we see a bunch of small groups doing their own garbas, back and forth, different variations (dodhiyu, popatiyu, sanedo, choo-choo train...) are just added flavors that is not necessarily what I'd call traditional garba.

Obviously, very little of the traditional version is left now due to heavy commercialization/westernization where Navratri is heavily marketed towards the youth with the wrong message (often seen as hook-up opportunity). Traditional garbas are probably still performed in smaller villages or communities. I'll try to add relevant clips below if I find any.

Re: Navratri / Garba /dandiya songs

Thank you for an elaborate post. Looks like people find a way to make money in anything. In North India (esp Delhi, Haryana, Punjab) jagran or jagrata (overnight chanting of mantras, devotional songs) have become elaborate showoff and decent monies are involved. One night of chanting with main singer, chorus, etc charge in lakhs depending on turnout planned.

I think though this is the partly the reason Hindus have not given the kind of space to Christianity as some other parts of India.

Re: Navratri / Garba /dandiya songs

I think its good you are trying to get all the Indian songs. But how many of your guests are up to date with Bollywood songs? I doubt many are. All these songs being suggested, make sure they are all enjoyable. I enjoy familiar songs better than new ones.
mix some good english songs too.

all the people turning up are Indian born and brought up but here for one reason or the other - short or longer term. I wouldnt even dream of an english song in the list.
