Talking passionately about Dhoad, Artistic Director Rahis Bharti explains –
“At the heart of Dhoad Gypsies are four brothers from a rich and celebrated musical legacy reaching back through seven generations from the esteemed musical tribal caste of Rajasthan.
“Rajasthani music is respected by virtuosos the world over for its emotion and unparalleled rhythmic speed and complexity, evoking a trancelike state for audience and performers alike.
“Dhoad Gypsies have embarked on a rapturous journey with love, peace and honour at the centre of their lyrical message. Passionate and haunting, the legendary onstage stamina combines sweeping scales and vocals, a traditional Gypsy Rajasthani dancer and stunts by the group’s resident fire eating “Fakir” for a truly unforgettable experience.
“Dhoad Gypsies consist of eight world class musicians, performing a diverse repertoire of traditional, spiritual and life-affirming Rajasthani folk music and semi-classical North Indian compositions enriched by world folklore.”
