India's wedding season peaks from late October to early December as couples choose to wed in these auspicious months, Getty Images reports. Many musicians are lured to Delhi from neighboring states to work for the popular traditional brass bands that play during weddings. The twenty musicians of the Rajan Band are paid the equivalent of $8 a day, working long hours to fulfil demand, whilst the band owner charges clients the equivalent of $520 per wedding.
