This book was his dream project. It is a Historical study of the various Konkani-Speaking communities of coastal Karnataka, the focus being on their contribution to music. Whereas the major Konkani communities, that is, the Saraswats, the Gaud Saraswats and the Konkani Christians, are treated in considerable depth, the study also extends to smaller Konkani communities such as the Dunnbis, Kharvis, Siddis and Navayats. All categories of music are covered: church music, bhajan music, folk music, classical music, light music, etc. The book concludes with a musical directory of church chairs, exponents of the gumtam, brass bands, beat groups, etc.
