Take a bow Photo by Vaibhav Arora — National Geographic Your Shot


My photograph of Rajasthan’s folk musicians was selected and published today by the National Geographic YS website. Made it to top 30 out of 9600 worldwide entries! So happy! Link and description below. 

Take a bow Photo by Vaibhav Arora — National Geographic Your Shot: Thirty eight members of ”The Manganiyar Seduction’ troupe, drawn from villages of the Thar desert of India accept the audience’s applause at the end of their performance. Singing sufi lyrics to the accompaniment of folk instruments, the 67 minute long solo track builds up as each performer reveals himself from his individual jewellery cube by sliding his curtain aside. By the crescendo, the entire ‘box’ is open and the audience mesmerized.
