gangireddu in vijayawada..

P1080943These are Itinerant musicians known as “gangireddu” round here…its a tough life, they elaborately adorn an ox and travel from place to place playing music for a few rupees or some rice. Incidentally i know these shots are a little over exposed but in real life they were even more vibrant. Beautiful.


I see them this time in Vijayawada and give them 10 rupees for a photo…would love to take many more shots but as soon as am seen handing over cash other people want some too and i have to move on…
