Dhoad Gypsies: North American debut today
A last minute telephone call has provided me with the opportunity to witness the North American debut of the Dhoad Gypsies of Rajasthan. (Rajasthan is a province in the northwest of India)
As BlogTO.com readers may have gathered from previous reviews, I have a particular love of multidisciplinary performance. This may have to do with my short attention span but more likely it is a result of an ingrained adoration of spectacle.
The Dhoad Gypsies, presented by Small World Music, promises to provide that and more: with the artistic castes of the sapera-kalbelya ("fakirs", dancers and snake charmers), langas (poets), and manganyar (troubadours) this looks to be a promising event. I will let you know if it is was all that it appears to be.
