Santa Clara, California
For the fourth year in a row, Bahira and Indigenous performed at the fantastic Santa Clara Art & Wine Festival set inside picturesque Central Park on the popular Meadow Stage just north of the lagoon.  Photos by David Martin.
On Saturday Indigenous perform its Mytho-poetic style of belly dance reprising favorite pieces from past ethnic performances in a Crossover Set.  Bahira opened the set with "Thunderbird Sword" from the AmerIndian Set of dances and shared a duet with Fara'Asha in "Raven Bones."
Each dancer performed a solo in the style of their costume and then came together with another dancer in a crossover duet.
Fara'Asha perfomed a solo to "I Cash Radii" in the Gothic Tribal style and a duet with Aniq to Stevie Wonder's "Superstition"
Aniq performed a Samba representing the AfroBrazilian style and Shiva joined her for an Afro-Arabic drum duet.
Shiva finished out the solos with a graceful and playful traditional Egyptian belly dance routine and the whole Troupe joined in for the finale: "Some Like It Hot" -a modern American Hip Hop piece.
No, that's NOT "The Village People"!
See you next year!
