Abstract
Today, Kalbeliya dance from Rajasthan is generally considered part of India's dance heritage. Contrary to its claimed antiquity, however, Kalbeliya dance appears to have originated as recently as the 1980s. As a cultural product of Rajasthani fusion, the dance arose within commercial frameworks of the transnational world music industry and the local tourist industry and was grounded in neo-orientalist discourses (romanticism and exoticism). I discuss Kalbeliya dance from the following two perspectives: as an invented tradition that began with its annexation by the transnational gypsy world and consequently, as a constructed snake charmers' folk tradition and intangible heritage (UNESCO).
