Kantaben

Soaring high above the crowds, Kantaben is our vibrant Indian roller bird.

Watch as she roams about your festival skies, adding colour and charm as she searches for new friends to make.

Kantaben is accompanied by her puppeteer who will gently coax her into life, flapping her elegant silk wings which measure 4.5 metres in diameter. At night, Kantaben will light up your event with her soft glow.
