Indian dance group MAYURI, "Habibi" (Bollywood style sufism :)

Sufism as a mystic-religious trend appeared on the Arabian East, but in India, the country of music and dance, it took its' own specific form -
perception of God through the KAWWALI singing.
Kawwali is an art, having its roots in 12-th century, when the great sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti came to India with his sermons and found out that his new congregation perceived a sermon in a form of singing very well.
The Habibi dance made on kawwali music, is based on belly movements, but being taken to other basis and having other underlying reasons, this dance doesn't demonstrate the movements of hips as an end in itself, but expresses energetic, mystic and emotional sources laying in the music.
