Haha, I can almost hear their music!! wow, so many little things I miss!
In Hungary the elegant dress of the soldiers looked like those a bit.

Nice shot..did you get a chance to speak to any of them?I happen to speak to one such group few years and was shocked to know how much they get paid and how little of what they wear they own!
Nice to know that band artists are still around these days, you would think that they have gone obsolete.
They make others dance but they don't look even a bit excited.Tough life!
*** Kiski band bajegi ?dulheraje ki :D
Very brighty coloured uniforms.
Maybe they're bogged down by the idea of having to wear that costume in the blistering Chennai heat as the day progresses!
I thought South India had less of this type of Band Baja but then i must be completely wrong!
I guess these band used in procession of ganesh idol to immersion!

Ahhh, i remember once seeing a group of such band players around 10pm near GN Chetty road barista.. gen struck up a conversation... they were going home after a reception and had a wedding in the morn around 7 at some god foresaken place... they dont make that much either... the one thing i remember was the face of an old tired band member... he has been doing this all his life!!!
Wonder how much they earn!
Priyank - :) me too..are you missing home or is it just observation ? if its the latter, its only of late I have started looking at these little things and they do give a different perspective completely.

That's an unusual colour for an uniform. I've usually seen them wear red.
There are so many of them...In the North you can see them most during the wedding season...probably a tradition the British brought to India.
Back home, we call it the the traditional 'country band'..hehe! There's going to be a wedding in the family in a couple of months in Mangalore and I believe one such band has been already hired for one of the pre-wedding nights of fun and frolic!
