The Banjara, also known as the Lambani or Lambada are one among the nomadic tribal community of India. They are believed to have migrated from Marwar region of Rajasthan The word 'Banjara' comprises of two words: "Ban" which translates as jungle and "Jara" as wanderer or mover i.e., one who moves or wanders in the jungle. In the Mughal era, the community was engaged in transporting provisions and trading goods especially salts and cattle. Their habit of living in isolated groups, away from others, characteristic of their nomadic days, still persists and they live in the Tanda, settlements, on the fringes of towns. The Lambani have probably retained the most elaborate outfits of all other settlements. Almost all these communities moved from Central Asia through Afghanistan or Kashmir into Rajasthan, Gujarat and the South of India, and have shed some aspects of their clothing for convenience when moving about among more diverse societies. Most Lambada’s today are bilingual or multi-lingual, adopting the predominant language of their neighborhood
