Spirit of India – Bollywood Masala Orchestra & Dancers
October 21, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - October 22, 2015 @ 2:48 pm
“Spirit of India” features an ensemble of 17 accomplished musicians, dancers, and performers who whisk the audience away on a cultural adventure that takes them across India, from the culturally-rich region of Rajasthan to the bustling, cosmopolitan city
of Mumbai. The country’s movements, rhythms, and artistic expressions – both traditional and modern – are all on beautiful display in this thrilling show.
Rahis Bharti, the artistic director of the Bollywood Masala Orchestra, has spent much of his career traveling the globe, playing alongside different musicians and absorbing an array of musical influences. The Orchestra reflects this musical diversity
by including Indian and Western instruments, such as tabla, dholak, harmonium, clarinet, trombone, bass drums, and side drums.
The Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers reflects this style with vivid colors, vibrant music, extraordinary performances, traditional songs and dances, and even some numbers from popular Bollywood movies. “Dhoom Taana,” “Rajasthani Ghoomar,” “Nimbooda,”
and “Bhavai” are some of the songs and dances you can look forward to enjoying during this unforgettable evening.
“Spirit of India” takes things up a notch by creating some truly thrilling drama and spectacle in the form of daredevil acts. The production showcases performers breathing fire, standing on swords, and even doing an incredible Snake Charming Dance. You won’t soon forget these impressive stunts!
