The mysterious, little known Sidis are the descendants of Africans who travelled across the Indian Ocean from East Africa to India over the last 1000 years. As Sufi Muslim devotees to an African saint and symbolic ancestor, their sacred songs praise the gift of joy he brought from the waves of the sea. Sharing this sacred gift through their music and dance is their divine calling and life-affirming talent. The exuberant energy and joy Sidi Goma bring to the stage is captivating and powerful and their unique African-Indian heritage a fascinating discovery. "Spectacular, mystical and, most importantly, fun, Gujarat's Black Sufis are a revelation" (Rhythm Magazine)
