Topa village near Bundi India

This is me sketching tribal musicians playing amazing music with great passion in a village a few hours from Bundi. The organisers of the trip Life away from life had a friend in the village who let us stay the night here. The Topa tribe are normally nomadic but have built amazing houses and have great healthy crops and livestock. The tribe treated us very well.

The villagers all came in the evening to listen to the music and dance. They are all seating in a row on there amazing hand made seats that are woven with rubber tyres or rope.

This is a continuation of the tribe seating in a row left of the last picture.

The women all got up and danced there tradition dance to the music and looked very elegant.

This man is a great dancer, who really enjoyed himself dancing.
