The music is of uncomplicated innocence and songs depict day-to-day relationships and chores more often focal around bring of water. Rajasthan's cultural tapestry takes in simple folk to highly cultivated classical music and dance in its own distinct style.
In the realm of the folkways dance and music rule supreme and one cannot think of Rajasthan without this important element of its folk life.
This particualr musican was playing the evergreen "Kesariya Balam" - on his customised Sarangi in a street inside the Sonar Kella, Jaisalmer. He was even selling CD's of his own!

Hi Nilanjan Nandy
Indian folk music is diverse because of India’s vast cultural diversity. The Sarangi is the most important instrument in the folk music of Rajasthan. Probably the ancestor of violin...! Its name literally means sau rang (hundred colours). The name itself tells about the versatality of the instrument. The portrait brings all these facts through instrument and the folk musician captured through your lens. Thank for such a nice publication.
