Kamini has been a student, performer and teacher of
belly dance for over a decade. She began her studies
locally with Gypsy Fire, learning American Tribal
Style Bellydance. A few years later she joined forces
with Samara to form a multi-award winning Tribal
Fusion duet known as the Bijou Project. After a
decade of being “Tribal Fusion” Kamini began to
study classic American Cabaret and Egyptian style
belly dance, which she delved deeper into upon
moving to Portland. Once in the City of Roses,
Kamini became a regular performer at shows and
honed her skills dancing with live musicians.
Kamini continues to co-direct the Bijou Project as
well as collaborate with other dancers and troupes,
including Shape-Shifter Bellydance, the innovative
Tribal Fusion troupe, Nagamani, and as part of the
Darjeeling Dance Collective in Portland, Oregon.
Notable past performances include such venues such
as the Portland Rose Festival, Oregon Country Fair,
Northwest Folklife in Seattle, the Bend Roots Festival,
and the World Beat Festival in Salem, Oregon.
