Kalbeliya Dance and Music Group

Welcome to Kalbelia Dance and Music Group, where we bring to life the enchanting rhythms and mesmerizing movements of the Kalbelia community in Rajasthan. Led by passionate artists deeply connected to their cultural roots, our group embodies the essence of Kalbelia dance and music, captivating audiences with vibrant performances and stirring melodies.

The Kalbeliya dance is descended from the Kalbelia tribe, known for their nomadic lifestyle and deep connection with nature. It is a feast for the senses. With its graceful movements, intricate footwork, and colorful costumes adorned with mirrors and bells, the Kalbeliya dance tells stories of love, nature, and the joys and sorrows of life in the desert.

The dance is accompanied by the soulful music of the Kalbelia community with traditional instruments such as ‘bin’ (wooden flute), ‘dholak’ (double-sided drum) and ‘hartal’ (wooden clapper). These instruments create a soundscape that transports the listener to the heart of Rajasthan, evoking the beauty and mystery of the desert landscape.

In the dance and music ensemble Kalbelia we strive to preserve and make known this ancient art form for future generations. Through our performances, workshops and educational programs, we strive to share the rich cultural heritage of the Kalbelia community with audiences around the world.

Join us on a journey to the heart of Rajasthan, where every beat of the drum and movement of a dancer’s skirt tells a story as old as time itself. Experience the magic of Kalbelia dance and music with us and let yourself be carried away into a world full of beauty, rhythm and tradition.
