Rajasthani Gypsy Caravan

Prepare to be immersed in the raw authenticity, beauty, and artistry of the Rajasthani Gypsy Caravan, a vibrant evening of live music and dance with a world-renowned group of five outstanding folk musicians and dancer who will perform the traditional arts from the desert of Rajasthan, India. The Rajasthani Gypsy Caravan aims to promote, preserve, and share their culture. Performances will include various elements of the Rajasthani arts: colorful costumes, spinning dance of the snake-charmer, devotional singing, unusual instruments, story-telling, and ancient love songs. The gorgeous dancer, Suva Devi, was featured in the beginning scenes of the classic film, Latcho Drom, which follows the musical journey of the Romani (Gypsy) people. Coming from a royal lineage of musicians, and UNESCO artists, Ustad Arba Music Group will play Rajasthani Folk, Sufi, Hindu and Islamic Music. It is believed that the Romani people originated in Rajasthan, and to this day, there is a strong cultural link between the traditional, nomadic communities of Rajasthan and the widespread Romani Diaspora.
