I take this opportunity to introduce my company "Desert Arts", which specializes in promoting folk and other art forms of the northern Indian state of Rajasthan.

†I have traveled extensively to remote corners of rural Rajasthan to discover rich folk artists like gypsy dancers, Langa-Mangniyar musicians and acrobats.

††I have a group of† gypsy dancers ,musicians & acrobats, who have performed at international fairs and festivals.

†† Here I would like to give you a glimpse of Rajasthan's Thar Desert, which is not only famous for its centuries-old historical forts and palaces but also for its rich cultural and musical traditions.†

†The gypsies of Rajasthan, who hail from the Thar Desert, are known for their snake charming art, acrobatics (tight rope walking) and of course their folk dances and music.

Beside this if you want to learn any art form of Folk dance,music of rajasthan,i organize Folk music & dance workshop

"Desert Artís† also organize Workshop to teach different form of folk artís, in a unique method-that is if some one want to learn a particular art from a folk artist, then you have to stay with that artist in his or her village, so one can understand the tradition & art in a close manner. In addition desert artís† is also doing research on Rajasthan costumes, languages, paintings, architect, handicraft, different rituals of rural tribes!"
