The Bhopa priest-singer communities are traditional storytellers of the Pabuji Ki Phad in Rajasthan, India. The Pabuji Ki Phad epic is about the life of a 14th century hero called Pabuji and his adventures traditionally told by the Bhopas in front of a Phad; a 30-foot-long painted tapestry that functions as a portable temple with painted or sewn miniature scenes depicting Pabuji’s story. The Bhopas play a Ravanhattha fiddle with a female singer reciting Pabuji's epic to the public. The Bhopa musical communities live a rural base and function as wandering minstrels traveling from village to village carrying on the Pabuji Ki Phad tradition.
