Where ya gonna go when looking for a professional dance group to demonstrate the intricacies of traditional Indian dance? Russia, of course. One dancer speaks to the group, then gestures from the stage to the sound man in his booth. Despite the traditional Hindi music, the woman is speaking Russian, because Mayuri dance group hails from the town of Petrosavadosk, a community closer to Finland than it is to Moscow. This weekend, Mayuri performs in Anchorage. It is a little over three hours flight from Delhi to Moscow, and our India culture in Russia is pretty big.
