The Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers of India present "Spirit of India", a new step toward a bold vision in Indian live music and dance being presented to the world for the first time. Rahis Bharti, one of India’s greatest musical figures, and the Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers of India invite you on a lively musical journey from Rajasthan to Mumbai.
The Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers of India is a vision of Rahis Bharti, who invites you into the world of music, dance, dynamic rhythm and spirituality that characterizes the incredible India we know today. From an early age he was captivated by both the rich traditions and modern interpretations of his country’s signature sound and vision. Over his career Bharti has travelled the world performing and has made each prestigious festival, concert hall or theatre into a lavish and courtly stage of his own imagining. With 17 professional artists onstage, you will experience the soul of a veritable feast of Indian sounds, featuring a mix of Indian and Western instruments such as bass drums, side drums, trombone, tabla, dholak, harmonium, and clarinet, among many others. Your feet will soon be tapping along without you even realizing it.
