Blind Thai Buskers

We're all used to buskers, but blind buskers? There were quite a few around the tourist magnet spots in Thailand. In Bangkok, we saw several like this guy below at the Chatuchak Market, who were actually walking around with their sticks tapping away, whilst singing along to music blasted from their chest-mounted speakers.

Whilst nearby Wat Pho in a street market, we saw this seated chap creating some beats with his drum.

At Chiangmai's famous Ratchdamnoen Walking Market, there was a seated quartet of partially-sighted musicians (I guess they were a band). I think we saw the same band on a different night at a different market.
