COBRA GYPSIES offers a colorful window into the startling ancient culture of the nomadic Kalbeliya tribes living in rural Rajasthan, Northern India. A decade ago, their folk songs and dances were declared a part of the Intangible Heritage List by the Unesco.

This film explores their culture of eternal dance, syncopated music, snake charming, colorful fashion as well as their way of life.

These exotic looking castoffs are the ancestors to the Roma Gypsies living in Europe today.
