Suva Devi and the Rajasthani Gypsy Caravan

Interrupting this regularly scheduled beauty and makeup programming with something amazing. Last night I went to see Suva Devi, who is a famous dancer from the Kalbelia culture in Western Rajasthan in India, along with amazing musicians from Ustad Arba Music Group.

So, I know I’ve mentioned before that I belly dance, but this more folk-type dance really speaks to me. It’s just so…beautiful. Really, the energy in this dance is so moving. It’s the dance of a very low caste in India, but it’s so celebratory. I dare you to watch my videos and not smile or gape in wonder.
