Photo of Papu, semi-nomadic Pabujii singer, Pushkar, Thar Desert, Rajasthan, India


Photo of Papu is a Rajasthani semi-nomadic Bhopa tribal woman and a Pabujii epic singer. She spends all day under the hot Thar Desert sun singing for tourists at the Pushkar Mela (Pushkar Camel Fair) in Rajasthan, India. I spent some time with her and her family at the camp near the Pushkar Fair where they sleep in tents and cook. Her eyes are irritated from the Thar Desert dust kicked up during the Pushkar Mela. Her black eye makeup is typical of Rajasthani Bhopa tribal woman. Their baby girls also have this type of eye makeup.
