"The Siddhis of Gujarat in India still live with traditional African customs from their native Sudan, but having been in India for centuries, they have mingled with Gujarati culture as well. A fascinating community, they practice the most amazing song and dance routine, with the lead throwing up a hard coconut in the air and cracking it atop his noggin as it falls through the air!
