I was once at a cultural event, where a group of men performed ganga and people in the audience rolled their eyes, they whispered rudely and mocked the performers.
When urban people hear ganga, they experienced it as disorganized sound, a symbol of primitivism.
When I hear it (i’m a country boy) I get moved.
Images of primitive tribal people run through my head. I see ancient Illyrians gathering around in the centre of their village, after they finished they daily routine. When i think about ganga, I always imagine a group of Illyrians talking to eachother, and when conversation dies down, while everyone is just sitting there as they are trying to think of a topic, one mildly intoxicated Illyrian starts to wail, and others join in.
Ganga is characterized by a lone singer singing a single line of lyrics, followed by others joining in, using a vocal style that is best described as a wail.
Fuck, they were musically handicapped.
