No one can stand in the face of the changes and conditions that overwhelm folk culture, especially the performing arts. We miss, in our days, the great performers who used to sing professionally and full heartedly.
One example of the arts that have been displaced is the pearl diver singing. With the end of the pearl diving industry, the pearl diver singers resorted to evening gatherings to reiterate the songs they used to sing onboard. Singers of our days spare no efforts to revive the traditions of pearl diver songs, trying hopelessly to bring back the same glory of those past days.
