A street musician playing sarinda, a stringed Indian folk musical instrument similar to lutes or fiddles. It is played with a bow and has three strings. The bottom part of the front is its hollow wooden soundbox, covered with animal skin. The sarinda was invented by Sikh Guru Arjan Dev. The tribes of India, e.g. Tripuris, use the sarinda in their traditional music and dance. It is the sole accompany for a solo or group folk singer(s).
