One of the most sensuous dance forms of Rajasthan, performed by the kalbelia “snake – charmers” community.
The kalbelia dancers wear long black skirts embroidered with silver ribbons. As they spin in circle, their body sways acrobatically, sway sinuously to the accompainiment of pungi, dufli and plaintive notes of the “been” – the wooden instrument of the snake charmers.So that it is impossible to believe that they are made of anything other than rubber. As the beat increases to such high pitch, free flowing voice, while others join in the dance. The vigorous and zestful display of their perfect movements to the enchanting tune of musical instruments is a treat to the eyes.
