Mewati Jogis of the Alwar region are also known as the
Bharathari Jogi. Muslim by caste they perform for Hindu
patrons. They recite devotional songs and heroic ballads,
such as that of the Krishna (Chandrawal Gujari) Mahabharata
(Padun Ke Kade), Ramayana (Lanka Chadai) and also worship
Lord Shiva and many other folk heroes in that region.
These Muslim Jogis in the past were nomads but now they
are more or less settled. They narrate the story with
traditional instruments such as Jogia, Sarangi, Dholak,
Bhapang, and Harmonium.
