MUSIC: ADI DHARM SAMAJ

Adi-Dharm Samaj is a political, cultural and religious movement of Valmikis, one of the most oppressed among Dalit castes in north India, with its base in the north Indian states of Punjab, Haryana and to some extent in Himachal Pradesh. Adi Dharm Samaj came into existence in 1994 as a breakaway faction of the Bharatiya Valmiki Dharm Samaj. Popular songs and ballads written by local lyricists which explicitly counter the upper-caste narration of the mythical events and popular figures are sung during the Satsangs by the Adi Dharm followers. These songs are primarily divided into two categories- the Bhakti (religious) songs and the Krantikari (revolutionary) songs. The later consist of the Valmiki experience of caste oppression while the former are generally sung in the reverence of lord Valmiki but not without the subversion of the dominant religious narratives.
