This film offers a colorful window into the startling ancient culture of the nomadic Kalbeliya tribes living in rural Rajasthan, Northern India. A decade ago, the Unesco declared their folk songs and dances a part of the Intangible Heritage List.

We explore their culture of eternal dance, syncopated music, snake charm, colorful fashion, and their way of life.

These exotic-looking castoffs are the ancestors of the Roma Gypsies living in Europe today.
