By Zoe C. Sherinian

Zoe C. Sherinian indicates how Christian Dalits (once referred to as untouchables or outcastes) in southern India have hired song to protest social oppression and as a car of liberation. Her concentration is at the existence and theology of a charismatic composer and chief, Reverend J. Theophilus Appavoo, who drew on Tamil people track to create a particular kind of indigenized Christian track. Appavoo composed songs and liturgy infused with messages linking Christian theology with reviews of social inequality. Sherinian strains the heritage of Christian tune in India and introduces us to a group of Tamil Dalit Christian villagers, seminary scholars, activists, and theologians who've been encouraged via Appavoo’s tune to paintings for social justice. Multimedia elements on hand on-line comprise video and audio recordings of musical performances, spiritual providers, and group rituals.
