Konkani song, of which Goan Song is a pre-eminent branch, is a treasury of the traditional music of the Indian subcontinent. Its 35 types include the monophonic and harmonic varieties. Its main themes are love and events, the latter social and political in nature. But its favorite theme is love, oriented toward marriage, where the lover yearns for union with his beloved, achieves it, or laments his failure to realize it.
