Male native speaker performs 15 songs from Panch Pargana ["Five Districts"] in India's Jharkhand State. [It is not clear whether the language used might not be Panchpargania.]

Tapes are the two halves of a dub probably made by John Wahl in January 1965. (Inasmuch as a male speaker gives the date "23 November" [1964?] at the beginning of the first tape, the suggestion is that the studio recording was done at that time.) Note: Munda apparently got confused in the numbering of the songs: Two songs are called No. 3, and there is no No. 11. The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
