Candolim Sangodd 2012

Orda Candolim, 29th June 2012

So. what's SANGODD?
Two or more Canoe /Boats joined together to form a larger boat 'sangodd' a chapel like structure erected and a stage to perform on it.  Various locals and other professional cantorists sing songs onboard the Sangodd.
The sangodd sails from one station to another (traditional halting points).
Onboard, they chant 'Viva Sam Pedr(u)' (Viva St. Peter).
St. Peter being fisherman himself, is regarded as patron Saint of Fishermen's folk.
Today, the 29th June is St. Peter's Feast, so traditionally, the locals celebrated SANGODD on this day.
