Sing and make merry

A wedding party held in a nomadic area in Tibet. This is the groom’s house and the bride’s relatives are being entertained with a banquet and songs by the groom’s relatives. When the nomads still lived in tents they held their weddings in the summer pasture, but recently they have built their own houses and the weddings are mostly held in the new year.
