A folk dancer from a group of travelling troupe

She is a member of a travelling troupe of singers, dancers and musicians. There are many such groups in rural Bengal travelling across the villages in the Hindu month of 'Bhadra' to collect donations from people when the paddy planting season is over. They carry a replica of goddess 'Bhadu' and sing in her praise.
