Abstract: This work analyses the role and the meaning of music in the religious practices and the shamanism of the Khonds, a skeduled tribe settled in the hinterland of the Indian region of Orissa. Music is an important element in every ritual and ceremony, moreover it's an essential vehicle to reach a modified state of consciousness. By conducting a strict analysis of the musical experience in Khond shamanism and religion, this study underlines how music is employed by the shaman and the ordinary priest as a powerful instrument to be in touch with deities, spirits and ancestors: musical performance is inquired as a sine qua non of Khond religious and shamanic practices.
