05 Khyali




This song is a lyrical exchange of dialogue chiefly popular among young girls and boys. It must have a lyrical flow in pronunciation. There are different types of Khyalis. In the Limbu tribes of Taplejung district, they have a tradition wherein the girl losing to the boy in the lyrical debate should go with him. On contrary, if the boy loses, he must keep his promises. There need not be any special occasions and fixed time for these songs to be sing. They are accepted and well appreciated all over the country among all communities. There is one other similar lyrical exchange of dialogue between boys and girls which is called Dohari.
