Though not one of the top-notch groups, the enthusiasm and energy of the dozen-odd performers was enough to entertain a select audience of senior government ministers, VIP’s and other guests at the imposing open air ‘auditorium’ of the Bahrain Fort.
Though all the songs and other acts centered around the traditions of Rajasthan state, the 90-minute programme did take us back to some of the well-known but rarely seen lifestyle of people in some parts of India.
The awesome fire ‘eating’ and the balancing acts, with one performer even dancing on a bed of nails or the very energetic dance by women in traditional clothing were a treat to watch and got the audience on its feet.
Not much happens in the name of entertainment in this country but when it does, it’s an occasion to go out and be part of it. That’s what we did – and will do again!
