Description:This session presents a description of Ghatu dance of Baram people. This is a relatively long session recorded in Baram office in Kirtipur, Kathmandu in controlled envoirment.
This project aims to document Baram, a seriously endangered language of Nepal, for its preservation and promotion. For this purpose, we will develop a corpus of the various texts of the Baram language and thereby prepare resources such as its sketch grammar, lexicon and ethnographic profile. To revitalize the language, we will develop Baram orthography and prepare a Baram primer to facilitate its use in basic education and literacy programmes. The audio-video recordings of the Baram database will be archived with its annotation in a website for its accessibility to linguists, ethnographers and the Baram speech community.
This session presents a description of Ghatu dance (a traditional and ritual type) of Baram people. In this text, the description of Ghatu, a traditional and cultural dance in a group. There are separate cloths, ornaments, etc. for this dance. The old people sing the Ghatu song. What is interesting is that only female are allowed to dance while males sing the song. However, Tok Man Baram who is a fluent language speaker of Baram and more useful in recording text, has produced this typical text.
Mr. Tok Man Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him from the beginning of the project. and have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller.His texts are generally interesting, systematically organised and clear.
