Primeval music or aadim sangeet has tones that represent the indigenous nature of its creators - abstract and poetic. Even though most of the tribal music is really functional, it often has the sanctity of a ceremonial rite. This is why a large part of the tribal music is dedicated to the life-cycle-birth events like the initiation of a baby, wedding ceremony, and death. Then there are songs about the harvest and planting of the fields. Many of these songs are devotional and ritualistic in nature. The tribal farmers sing songs as prayers for good harvest, while the hunting and food-gathering tribes sing to propitiate their deities. The best tribal songs are those that offer thanks to their deity. Some common musical instruments that the tribal musicians of the Bastar region use are drums, tambourines, and trumpets.
