Pydhonie



There are a number of bands that operate out of Pydhonie, in South Mumbai. Some of them have been performing at weddings and functions from as far back as 1840! Each of these bands have their speciality and perform for specific communities like Muslim, Punjabi, and Gujarati. These bands play more than just music. They rent out horse drawn carriages, decorations and in the case shown above, mythological style clothes for Gujarati families celebrating a family event with a procession from their home to the hall where the event is being held.
