Dance and music has been an integral part of Indian culture and social life. All customs, ceremonies and festivals have one common ingredient dance and music. The duo differ in each state of this vast country but the essence remains the same. As the viewer's eye moves from left to right, we see a man dancing in abandon to the music of a wind instrument and a drum. He is wearing an opaque jama and striped trousers. With the swirl of his jama, the qamar band and the strings of his dress also flow in a particular direction. The face is in profile, as he raises his head. The movement of the limbs seem spontaneous and does not follow a set pattern. The man in the middle is playing the wind instrument and variations of it are tucked in his sash. His cheeks are full of air that he is about to blow into the pipe. He sits with his knees folded in and looks towards the dancer. Behind him stands the drummer, vigorously playing the drum with a single stick. His jama opens up in front to reveal a loose striped pyjama. He also wears a pair of traditional 'juttis'. All three men wear similar jamas but their turbans very in size and design.

This painting belongs to the Sikh Scholl of Indian miniature painting.
