India

Beautifully embroidered and embellished costumes are a hallmark of the Kalbelia nomads of India’s desert state of Rajasthan. In former times, the Kalbelia and other nomads provided musical and dancing entertainment for royalty. Today they still travel to fairs and festivals, where they perform and participate in folk dances and other celebrations.
