Antakshari

This item is not in the library — it is a part of: Karaoke.

Antakshari is a musical "word-chain" game, where each player (possibly a team) sings the first verse of a commonly known song starting with the letter or syllable that ended the verse delivered by the previous opponent.

The game is popular in India, played often with Bollywood songs, made its way to a few movie scenes, and was a basis for a TV show and online activities. Naturally, the faster you come up with your part, the more appreciated might be your skill. You may sing the whole song, or just the first verse, the quick, more collage approach of "singing just the first verse" would be the one that to fit the scope of our wiki the most.


It seems that the same chaining poetic structure was used also in Ramayana for songs of the sages, but it somewhat understandably gets lost in translation.
