Indian Rain Dance

there'll also be snake charmers

The bosses at Terra Natura theme park have drafted in a troop of Indian street entertainers from Rajastan to perform authentic dances of the region in the Asian section of the park. This section already contains 300 species of animal in their natural habitat and now visitors will be able to see the group of 15 artists from the Siyaram troop performing typical dances from their home town.

Amongst them are dances to invoke rain (let's hope that one doesn't work) and to celebrate births, marriages and important visits. If that wasn't enough, there'll also be snake charmers, fire eaters and the likes strolling about plying their dangerous trade. As there are over 100 different performances, visitors to Terra Natura will probably never see the same act twice!
