The Bopa Gypsy people of Rajasthan follow the path of their ancestors. All of them still make their livelihood from music and chants they perform for small monetary donations. Bopa people establish their camps on the outskirts of towns. They travel to Indian fairs and festivals in the hopes of finding enthusiasts of their musical ballads.
