Spirit of India: Masala Orchestra Sunday, November 8, 2:00 p.m. Fine Arts Center Concert Hall

Rahis Bharti, the band with a fabulous group of musicians and dancers, has travelled the world performing making each prestigious festival, concert hall or theatre into a lavish and courtly stage of his own imagining.

On this tour the artists take the audience on a toe-stepping musical journey from the deserts of Rajasthan to the urban city Mumbai to showcase a varied repertoire of gypsy tribal music -mystical, bardic, devotional and Bollywood songs highlighting unique percussive instruments. The dancers in stunning costumes appear as a riot of color presenting the snake dance, the bell dance and more.
