Mirasins and their Performances


This photo documentation tries to capture the acts and performances of Mirasins.  In the first three photographs they can be seen performing in the house of one of the taluqdars. Though a big enough diwan was placed in the room, they sat down on the carpet to sing. It is customary for mirasins to sit at a lower level than their patrons. In the fourth and the fifth photograph the mirasins can be seen singing in their home. The child is clapping along the beats and will gradually learn the art without any ‘formal’ training. A qawwal, brother of one of the mirasins, is on the tabla.
