Descendants of a black Sufi tribe originating from East Africa, the Sidi Goma first arrived in India in the 13th century. They were able to preserve their African dance and music tradition. During their powerful rhythmic rituals, the dancers enter into a trance. Sustained by the steadily intensifying music, they gradually attain ecstasy, breaking coconuts on their heads at its climax! The rituals of the Sidi Goma also include malonga solos – a stringed instrument that resembles the Brazilian berimbau – and quieter devotional parts, with prayers (Zikr) and chanting (baithi, dhamal and qawwali). The energy and exuberance of the Sidi Goma are contagious, their rituals hypnotic, and their traditions – at the crossroads of India and Africa – fascinating. Their performances are moments of unforgettable rapture.

Musicians: Allarakha Abdulhanif Mukindo, Jahid Mahmadbhai Makwana, Samir Minajbhai Nobi, Sohil Subhanbhai Nobi, Mukhitiyar Safimamad Makwa, Adil Abdulhanif Mukindo, Imtiyaz Ismailbhai Makwana, Imran Bilabhai Makwa.
