Snake charmer in Varanasi city, India.
Snake charming is the practice of apparently hypnotising a snake by simply playing an instrument. A typical performance may also include handling the snakes or performing other seemingly dangerous acts, as well as other street performance staples, like juggling and sleight of hand. The practice is very common in India. Many snake charmers live a wandering existence, visiting towns and villages on market days and during festivals. The most popular species are those native to the snake charmer's home region, typically various kinds of cobras, though vipers and other types are also used.
