Darbari Jhumur is the reminiscent of royal courts of Manbhum. Jhumur songs celebrating daily festivities and rituals of rural people became popular in the courts of local landlords and warlords and under their patronage, evolved in a new form - infused with classical ragas and Kirtan tunes. The singers Salabat Mahato, Amulya Kumar and Mihirlal Sing Deo are living legends of this art form. The album aims at safeguarding this rich folk art form - a key objective of our project 'Ethnomagic Going Global' that started in 2009, supported by the European Union.
