In the contemporary society we are constantly struggling to go back to our roots and to maintain
our ethnic identity. ‘Who am I?’ is a question that has been scrutinized by us in diverse forms in
our lives. How important do we think folklore in defining cultural identity? Culture is the
creative expression of a particular society through its symbols, stories, ballads, myths, literature,
art, music and for some its institution. An oral composition may be added to or subtracted from at
any time and by different people. The date regarding the historical background of the Deoris is
largely wanting due to scarcity of relevant ancient documents and other evidences. Regarding the
origin and pre-history of the Deori community few legends as well as traditional songs can be
considered as these appear to have represented real facts. How does a community foster its bond
between people and their folklore and exactly which of its aspects relate to the society at large:
the themes, the language, the forms, or the particular tales, songs and proverbs? The forms of
folklore are thus regarded as the cores at the hearts of artistic forms. Identity is an outcome, a
condition created largely through heritage which may or may not be conveyed through rituals as
the vehicle of transmission. The Deori culture is facing danger from the clutches of globalization
and striving hard to flourish. Such endangered culture so sprung -up by the nature thousand
years past now deserve preservation and propagation by the government itself from being extinct.
Thus, this working paper is a humble endeavour to deal with the notions of authenticity, locality,
vitality of oral culture and cultural identity of the Deori Community, in the realm of folklore.

Annotation: Folk songs are diverse in form and genre, including alla, song, ashula, yalla, lapar and children's folk songs. For example, the first song you hear in your life is God. The good hopes of mothers are an expression of their sweet dreams about the future of their children. It is one of the oldest and, at the same time, the most popular areas of national music, deeply ingrained in the life of the people. It is no exaggeration to say that in our country it is difficult to find a person who does not have a dutar, doira or other musical instrument at home and does not feel the life-giving effects of music in his life [1].
In order to increase the effectiveness of music culture lessons in secondary schools, the teacher should use a variety of interactive methods in advanced pedagogical technologies, especially computer technology. From time to time it is advisable to listen to samples of melodies and songs on tape or audio and video recordings. recommended. Everyone knows the saying, "It's better to see once than to hear a thousand times." If the oral mastering rate is 10%, teaching will be ineffective [7].
In folk songs, we often see simple and clear comparisons: “Because of the jeweler's attitude to words and images, the idea in each quartet is as dense and mature as the pomegranate seeds. The people do not start a speech from afar, they do not make a profit, they do not stiffen their necks, but they say something and take it from their souls: 'will be sharp. That's why it's easy to remember and spread quickly. Another feature of light, popular songs is that they are sung with melody. People want not only a song to be sung, but also a play to be performed”.[4]
