Kalbelia Dancer by the Fire
A shot of Kalbelia women dancing by the fire see my previous Kalbelia post for more details on the Kalbelia. We took a camel ride and camped in the Thar Desert, Rajasthan for the night where we were treated to dance and music by the Kalbelia. I also took some video which I’ll post at a later date.
The Kalbelia are also referred to as Sapera, Jogira or Jogi are known for their dance. Just searching for “Thar Gypsies” brings up some really interesting photographs on Google Images. I have some more video and pictures of the Kalbelia that I’ll follow up on and post later. More on the Kalbelia from the Wikipedia page.
