The tale of princess Rāni Bhañiyāõi's suicide and subsequent appearance as a spirit has served as a foundational narrative for the practices of local, Muslim, mānganiār musicians, Hindu patrons, and Bhopa priests in Rajasthan. This chapter examines social practices surrounding drummers, the song genres associated with Rāni Bhañiyāõi, and the variants of her story that have significant local implications.

Keywords:   mānganiār, Rāni Bhañiyāõi, Rajasthan, drummers, Bhopa, patronage, spirit
