Nepali Musician : In this image you can see a young Nepali dholak player,playing his Bhailo and Deusi Re tunes on the occasion of Deepawali.It is part of the Nepali tradition to sing Bhailo and Deusi Re in groups on the evening of Deepawali.
Some tidbits about Bhailo and Deusi Re songs :
Bhailo and Deusi Re are traditional songs that are sung during the festival of light Dipavali and also called "Tihar" in Nepal.Children and teenagers sing the songs and dance as they go to various homes in their community, collecting money, sweets, food and giving blessings for prosperity. Bhailo is generally sung by girls, while Deusi is sung by boys. At the end of these songs, the woman of the house serve food and give money to these deusi/bhailo singers and dancers. In return, the Deusi/Bhailo team gives blessings for high income and prosperity.

Interesting street scene of the sitting Nepali dholak player, multiple colors including the lavender shoes, and the eyes focusing back.
Thanks for sharing,

What a eclectic character you've captured here, he sure seems to have a flare for colorful attire. :) This is quite the definition of street musician, literally sitting on the street. I like that you've appeared to step down to eye level, because his regard towards your camera strikes an immediate connection with the viewer. Despite the flash and close proximity, the highlights look to be in tact, showing fine detail throughout. Lovely moment of soulful artistry. Have a great day ahead.

A nice portrait of this musician, who looks very interested in your camera. He shows an amazing mix of colours that draw my attention away from the people standing beside him. His hat is remarkably similar to the sarees of the two women.

Nice portrait of the drum player, a local traditional instrument. Fine light that enhanced colors on the beautiful image. He was enchanted by the presence of the camera and looked strait on.

Splendid portrait of this Nepalese musician, he looks at you with all attention, called my attention to that part of the fabric of the two saris we see in the picture is the same one that the musician in his cap ....
Very nice colorful tones as effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Have a good evening.
All the best.

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the traditional hat of Nepal and the unique music instrument.

Ah, Farhat, look at those shoes. Don't they stand out in terms of sheer audacity?
Superbly clicked, brings out the musician's need to get recognised, and for the at moment, to be photographed.
mirosu (14964) 2014-03-14 5:04
Excellent capture of street performer. Superb light & clarity. The direct eye contact is very good.

Très joli portrait de ce musicien des rues, aux vêtements très colorées, son "bonnet" aux dessins et couleurs qui ce copie a la tenues des longues tenues des dames, belle présentation

A superb portrait of this Nepalese drummer with good sharpness and saturation. Excellent use of fill in flash with almost no hard shadows and zero reflections off shiny surfaces. I might have reduced the red eye effect in photoshop, but still a good record of the daily life in Darj. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (14225) 2014-03-17 11:25
A very colorful photo depicting an interesting character. I am mesmerized by the color of his shoes.

Thanks for contributing to my education; I just heard on Utube a Deusi Re song and could marvel at the exotic melody in wich such kind of drum gives the rhythm!!
Miguel82 (24673) 2014-03-20 16:44
Fabbs I like the face expression of that Nepali musician and surprising purple shoes! Bright colors and good light..a pleasant portrait, good evening
pierrefonds (57933) 2014-03-25 19:10
You have captured well the concentartion of the musician. The point of view is showing the details, the colours of his clothing and of his instrument. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
ourania (32763) 2014-03-27 10:18
this is an interesting spontaneous portrait of the musician curiously sitting on the ground while other members of his group are standing behind him. He looks surprised by your flash and his intense expression, along with the bright colours, empowers the photo. As we get to see the other people only waist down, there's a sense of mystery too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
