Putheri was our maiden attempt in generating awareness about the wealth of our music. Putheri literally means the new rice gathered during our first harvest. It is also the name of the adivasi harvest festival.
The CD contains 19 songs which are sung on various occasions and sung by singers from Paniya, Kattunaikan, Beetakurumba and Mullakurumba tribes.
