Bollywood in the city...



We were in the city on Thursday last week to enjoy the cultural diversities of Harmony Week in 140 William. Diversities that included $5.00 truly tasty street eats.. the Bollywood/belly dancing, African drummers and Chinese lion dancers were an unexpected (to me) treat. Focused on food :) it was the music that alerted me to get my camera ready, music followed by a flurry of blue and white swirling silk capes opening to reveal dancers from Bollywood Dhamaka..


The combined super shimmying sent my camera into multi-exposure:)


A triumphant  finale..


... before disappearing into the crowds from whence they came! It was exciting to watch and almost impossible not to wiggle one's hips to the hypnotic beat.. you should have been there :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
