Cultural beauty at Nubra

The first set

The Cultural show at Nubra is a short performance of 15 minutes by few Ladakhi women, who sing and dance. The show is unique as these people are influenced by Gilgit-Baltistan crowd; that has been regular in the region, which gives them a touch of Pakistan.

What’s important to observe is they sing, dance and even play the local instruments all in one go, for 4 odd minutes and in this limited window of time, one team changes it’s traditional attire and gets ready for the next performance and this is how it repeats unless 5 songs are complete.
