Ghumar Dancer

A ghumar folk dancer spins, beads and tassels flying like propellers, skirt billowing into a dizzying tube of red and yellow patterns electrified with silver flashes. Her supple body twists and bends like a top. In her right hand she carries the end of her dupatta, which swoops and soars with each rotation.

Jaipur, Eastern Rajasthan
