The Patuas sing the stories they paint on frames. This singing with unfurling of scrolls is a major attraction for visitors of any cultural events. Many event organisers invite the artists to perform with their scrolls. You can also commission the artist to make special scrolls on the particular event for example the story of the couple in a wedding event.
