Bopa gypsy nomadic family, Pushkar, Rajasthan Desert, India.
Anja and Krishna Bopa handwrite the covers of their music tapes,
which they made using a small cassette recorder. They hope to sell a lot
of tapes during the Camel festival.
Bopa people sing as a duet, alternating between each rhyme. Their songs
can seem to have very high pitches and ardent melodies to western ears,
but they carry powerful messages. A song can last more than 5 minutes.
They depict historical events and cultural facts, and are passed down
orally from parent to child for generations.
