The Chimta Man

Met this man on the road and he was happy to pose:

He is holding a music instrument called ‘Chimta’. A Chimta is like a tong, made of long limbs and is played as a percussion instrument. These guys usually play and sing folk songs at shrines, festivals etc. Or they move around like a busker and would sing on demand. Sometimes they are accompanied with a drum and a simple string instrument.
