Introduction / History

The Bajgi community's name is derived from the word "baj" which refers to the playing of music. They are best known for playing drums, though many of them are tailors or barbers. Because these professions involve interacting with other communities, they share common folk art and even marriage partners with other people groups in Uttar Pradesh. They profess to be Hindus, though they also worship regional gods.

Pray that the Bajgi communities will find Christ to be the only one worthy of their worship.
