Tue 12 Mar 2013 | 8pm | £15 (£13)

Asian Arts Agency presents the mesmerizing music and dance of the celebrated Dhoad Gypsies. From a rich musical legacy that spans seven generations, four brothers from the esteemed musical tribe caste of Rajasthan are at the centre of the group. Rajasthani music is respected for its emotion and unparalleled rhythmic speed and complexity. Evoking a trance-like state for the audience and performer alike, the Dhoad Gypsies embark on a rapturous journey with love, peace and honour at the centre of their lyrical message. Passionate and haunting, the group’s legendary stamina on stage combines sweeping scales and vocals, a traditional Gypsy Rajasthani dancer and stunts by the group’s resident fakir – blended together to create a truly unforgettable experience.
