Rajasthan Culture



The Rajputana cultural diaspora is diverse but something typical and unique binds them together so that it never takes another Indian too long to single them out. Maand, the desert ballads sung in deep bass voice evoke pathos, while the twirling skirts of Ghoomar dancers, the balancing of brass pots (Chari dancers), performing on a bed of flaming coals, dancing on sword edges (Bhavai dance), Sapera dance of Kalbeliya snake-charmers’ community sets the adrenaline rushing with some exotic excitement. Sights and sounds, endemic to this desertland make up this cultural kaleidoscope. Take a look..
