White Brass hoops inspired by the Kalbeliya tribe in Rajasthan, India. In ancient times, the Kalbeliya were known for catching snakes and trading their venom. They created and perform a renowned unique serpent-like dance ritual (of the same name), where the women spin and swirl in long flowing black skirts and intricately-embroidered, almost hypnotizing clothing, while the men play a woodwind instrument traditionally used to charm snakes. Summon serpent energy too in these hoops.
