As we continue with our artist profiles for the Temple of Poi 2009 Fire Dancing Expo & 7 Year Anniversary, we spotlight student performer Vlad “Dr. Babu” Dubal who will be performing with Dark Side of the Rainbow.
Dr. Babu escaped at a young age from the clutches of the notorious Death Star and landed on planet earth, close to the eastern shores of the Caspian Sea. For 9 years he followed the direction of the morning sun until he reached the pacific ocean. After swimming for what seemed like an eternity, he reached the promised land… Amerikka. He quickly learned to speak gud English by listening to tapes by Jimmy Buffet and George Carlin, which he found in a beat-up chevy truck he had hot-wired somewhere in rural Alabama. Now he spins poi.
