Achik Folk Song: Doroa

Doroa is related to the myths of creation and gives an imaginative explanation of natural phenomena. It relates to the history of the tribe, describes the land they came from, their leaders and manner of migration, and the origin of chatchi and ma·chong. It is also sung on different themes and on different occasions like Mikchisokchidina, Amua, Den·bilsia, Mi ·chiRaona, Ganna, Nokdonggaa, Nokpante Nokdonggaa, Jaringa, and others. This narrative is called Ma·ambi and it covers all the important aspects of life which are based on rituals and ceremonies.

An example of Doroa taken from Iris Watre Thomas books  (2007) is given below:

Doroa

Dore seko tileka, Bengbul jachok rokreka,

Dore sko chota, Bengbul jachok bea,

Mite bisarara, Katchi angderara,

Ina gesebaongana, Ina dokgrikbaongana.

Rong kole gogrikbaonga,

Jaktome dokgrikbaonga,

Rubuga sole nipila

Dakara repe dakpila.

Rabugani soljaode, Dakaruni dakjaode,

Doreko sole nijaode, Bangbulko repe dakjaode,

Dorona jajanapang, wanbolna wakwanapang,

Norode mandede, Dimade Riside.

Translation:

Dore was unfaithful to her husband,

Bengbul‘s leg was unstable.

Dore‘s head is cut off and Bengbul‘s leg is broken,

They are all children of spirits and demons.

Thus started the quarrel and the fight,

There started pelting of stones,

There began fighting with fists,

Rabuga hewed back,

Dakara sculpted again.

If Rabuga had not hewed, nor Dakara sculpted

If Dore was not hewed back,

If Bengbul was not sculpted into shape,

There would have been hesitation to perform doroa and wanbola

On the part of Noro, the man, and Dima and Risi.
