The album "Lower Caste Religious Music From India" by Monks,Transvestites, Midwives, and Folksingers captures folk music of the masses across India, primarily of the blue collar and manual labor working classes. Not known to many westerners, the concept of "Caste" in India
was originally role based, not hereditary. The role-based system was
hijacked by power mongers in monarchies and oligarchies to the
notorious caste system that we have all now learnt to love to hate,
though some form of the system is found in all societies in varying
degrees and forms.
The seven tracks in this album provide a sample of the diversity and
richness of folk traditions in India, not necessarily tied to Lower
Caste, in spite of the title of the album.
