?The Rhythm of Rajasthan ensemble with its enthralling music and dance, hails from the windswept Great Thar Desert in Rajasthan ("the land of kings") in northwestern India. The musicians, from the Langa (?song giver?) and Manghaniyar hereditary groups of itinerant entertainers, return to New York with their program of vibrant and joyous folk music, encompassing driving percussion, ecstatic Sufi songs, and hypnotic sarangi (bowed lute) and algoza (doubleflute). They are joined by two dancers, including the famed Suva Devi (from the film Latcho Drom), who perform the Kalbeliya Sapera snake-charming dance and the spectacular Bhavai folk dance.?
