Presentation for the Uberoi Foundation of Religious Studies
Kalbeliya World was invited by the Uberoi Foundation of Religious Studies for their online event- Understanding Diversity & Inclusion: Exploring Four Dharma Traditions & Cultures of India. We started with a presentation about the Kalbeliya Community by dr. Ayla Joncheere followed by an explanation of how Kalbeliya World works by Christina Gomes.We then saw an incredible performance by Anita Sapera and Moreya Sapera from Pushkar. Lastly, Aakansha Maheshwari moderated a conversation between the audience members and the performers during the Q & A. The audience was left spellbound by the Bhawai and Kalbeliya performance and they loved learning about the costume, handmade jewelery, meaning of the songs, life of Kalbeliya Women, online class response and challenges and Kalbeliya women touring with members of other communities!
