When you think of Bollywood, and of dancing, what comes to mind? Likely, it’s spinning vertices of color, set to somehow simultaneously upbeat and ethereal Indian music.

But how many of us have actually seen this music performed?

You’ll have your chance with the Bollywood Masala Orchestra & Dancers of India, presenting “The Spirit of India” at the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.

The music and dance ensemble, founded by Rahis Bharti (one of India’s greatest musical figures) will take the audience through the history and intense spirituality found in the songs of their country. Traditional Indian instruments, singers, and dancers (and an acrobat!) come together for a unique show you won’t want to miss. — Sara Toth
