Eight Goddettes

This is not a groovy group of soul singers. The Dakinis are in fact eight witchy women who performed all manner of magical tricks both on and off the battlefield.

Eventually they became blood-guzzling attendants upon Kali. However they may perform groovy soul numbers at weekends.

They proved so popular that they went on tour in Tibet and become the Buddhist Dakinis.
