From Jaipur, India, the Dhamaal Dancers and Musicians of India visit with a tribute to Holi, the Hindu festival of colors. The troupe of traditional musicians, dancers, acrobats, and singers revels in the holiday’s spirit of merriment and release, with a program of devotional music, lighthearted songs, and ballads about the romance of the gods Lord Krishna and Radha. The ensemble is led by tabla player Rahis Bharti, who descends from a long line of court musicians and last year was named a UNESCO Cultural Ambassador. Bharti last visited Cal Performances with his Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers of India in 2015.
