    from Narayanpet, Telangana

Story


DAKALLI POSHAPPA is a KINNERA FOLK SINGER from Narayanpet district of Telangana State. He sings songs of Meera Saheb,Panduga Sayyanna,Bandlolla Kurmanna and many other folklore. There are many songs that exist in praise of "Robinhood saviours" in villages over a long period of time. These 'Robinhood' saviours were supposed to have looted the rich and helped the poor with the looted cash in ancient times. DAKALLI moves around and sings such songs to entertain others and help all know the rich history of the state. The Kinnera musical instruments are also made by him meticulously.
However, due to his increasing age and associated ailments , and the recent outbreak of COVID-19, DAKALLI finds it difficult to provide for himself and his family. He has no earnings and his limited savings have been exhausted. Let us all come forward and help him during these hard times, so that he can bounce back once the lockdown is lifted and enrich us more with the folklore tales and his music.
