Songs have always held festivals together. Whatever may the occasion be – from wedding to pongal, they are all graced by wonderful numbers. The folk songs are one of the best but apart from them we also have popular film songs which have made the festival more vibrant. These songs (given below) which featured in different films evergreen for the festival.
Pongal is one of the most important festivals of the southern India – especially in Tamil Nadu. Feasting and joyful singing are important parts of the festival. This is why there are a lot of songs that are dedicated solely for this festival. These songs beautifully capture not just the essence of the festival itself but also the vibe of the entire state during this festival.
These songs are sometimes based on the theme of mythology, religion. Sometimes they have the theme of wealth and poverty. The pongal songs are also sometimes based on love and war. This itself shows that pongal is a festival that has rooms for all kinds of human emotions. Just like all the other festivals of India, Pongal is incomplete without these songs. So lets have a look at the different songs that make this festival a success –
