About this event
Originating from Kerala, South India, this dance style is exclusively performed by women. ‘Mohini’ is a beautiful lady who dances ‘attam’, a enchantingly, feminine sequence with wave-like body movements. The theme of the dance is generally ‘sringara’ or love, delicately performed with suggestive gestures, rhythmic footwork and lyrical music.As part of the 20 years celebrations, we present regional dancers Remya Nambiar and Rashmi Sudhir. Both dancers hail from Kerala and are trained in Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Mohiniattam.
Sounds of Sitar
Kala Sangam is delighted to present Roopa Panesar, one of the finest Sitar players on the British Indian music scene. Roopa has been receiving accolades from audiences and peers alike for her outstanding ability and quality of music. Her soulful and unique style of playing has left her listeners captivated. Along with a busy performing career, Roopa has also been regarded as a fine teacher for the next generation. Deeply rooted in classical tradition, Roopa has also collaborated with musicians from a diverse range of genres. Roopa will be accompanied by the reputed Yorkshire artist, Bhupinder Chagger on the Tabla (north Indian drums).
