The mando is a unique genre of Goa, born of the western influences on the aristrocatic class who had imbibed and adopted Portuguese and Western ways of food, dress and culture. However the cultures that formed of this confluence yielded one that was strongly Goan - the Third culture in the words of Alberto de Noronha.
The melodies of mando are not borrowed western tunes, but were composed by Goan composers, with text written in their mother toungue, Konkani. The mando has a slow melody and the texts comprise of three stanzas. Each stanza is composed of eight bars, and the third stanza is usualy the refrain, referred to as the Estrebilho.
