Maryland Masti 12

Maryland Masti is an annual intercollegiate Garba/Raas competition held by the students at the University of Maryland, College Park. Our goals include spreading awareness of the traditional folk dance cultures of the West Indian State of Gujarat, providing an outlet for current students to express their passion for such dance, entertaining the guests at our show, and having a great weekend -- staff, teams, and audience alike!
