Musical farmers? That is the Dagi people. Their traditional occupation was to play musical instruments at festivals and celebrations, but many of them are now farmers. Economically they are not doing well, partially because they have a low literacy rate.
Some of the Dagi are Tibetan Buddhists, and those that are Hindu incorporate some Buddhist elements. Like animistic peoples, they appease local spirits. Thus, they fear many spirits. These same spirits provide obstacles for anyone who wants to serve the one true God.
It might take people who are rich in faith and love to go to them and demonstrate in a practical way that they can be made whole by Jesus Christ despite spiritual obstacles.
"Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever." Psalm 23:6
Pray for leaders of today’s people group to put all their hope in the Lord just like King David did when he wrote this Psalm.
Pray for Dagi elders and patriarchs to see and understand that Jesus Christ has power over all spirit beings, and he can provide them with life to the full. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among the Dagi people to redefine them as a community.
