Dancing Peacock organised Music & Cultural Experience for G20 Sherpa Delegates at their farewell lunch at Ranakpur, Rajasthan. We also designed the entire event including venue layout and décor.
The Sherpas were greeted with lively welcome performance by a Bagpiper & Dhol band from Suratgarh in northern Rajasthan. Large Bams / Nagaras (drums) and Jhanjh (Cymbals) played from a beautifully decorated platform and Bahuroopiyas (traditional impressionists) played living statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati under a Peepal tree.
The highlight of the day was a unique, power-packed concert THAAP – Rhythm of the Desert specially designed by Praveen Arya and Vinod Joshi.
THAAP is a 30-minute ensemble of musically diverse classical & folk percussion instruments of Rajasthan accompanied by the Sindhi Sarangi and the Kamaycha, played by 20 leading musicians from 6 music communities from 4 distinct cultural regions.
