Soaking in dance

Bangalore: "Nritya Nirajana", a two day festival of arts, was held last weekend at Seva Sadan under the auspices of Ananya Trust. This festival is one of the many platforms conceived by its Managing Trustee Dr RV Raghavendra to further its mission of preserving and propagating India's rich cultural heritage. Despite the gloomy and dribbling weather, the festival drew a packed audience from across the city, and was marked by a vibrant array of Bharatanatyam and Kathak recitals, a distinctive panel discussion on the theme "Bridging theory and practice in performing arts", and screening of "Maraynduvarum Marabugal" - a documentary movie on the artistic heritage of several hereditary families and their contributions to the art of Bharatanatyam.

On the occasion, the trust also released its 5th and 6th music CDs in the series of "Nritya Sangeetha". Conceptualized and directed by Gurumurthy and D.V. Prasanna Kumar, the music is set by Srivatsa and Balasubramanya Sharma. For further enquiries on the CDs, contact Ananya Trust at ananya.blr@airtelmail.in or +91-80-23440409.
