  Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band
SPIRIT OF INDIA
Artistic director: Rahis Barthi
Originating from Jaipur, the city of the maharajas in the Indian Rajasthan, the Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band consists of seven fine musicians, a beautiful female gipsy dancer and an amazing fakir juggler. They play a range of traditional brass instruments including trumpets, trombones, tubas, clarinets and saxophones and perform stunning dances and mind-boggling feats of strength and skill. Indian Brass band music roots go deep into the sub-continents colonial past. Introduced in the middle of the 18th Century by the British as a gift, today, sixty years after India’s independence, thousands of Brass Bands play at every carnival, religious festivity or marriage celebration. The Jaipur Brass Band have played hundreds of concerts everywhere from Asia to North America, under the direction of the famous musician Rahis Barthi. The group has played in 2012 at the Diamond Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth II and in 2013 for the President of India in Jaipur.
