Dances from the Silk Road (2)

This is the Bukhorcha Dance and Music Ensemble performing at the Nadir Divanbegi Madraasa in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The Ensemble put on a great show which lasted about an hour or so with stunning costumes, beautiful dance and fabulous musicians.
The building was initially constructed in the 1620s for use as a caravansari. However at its opening ceremony the Imam declared that the building must be a madraasa (school) and many changes and additions then had to be made.
