Kathakali
Kathakali
Description

From the Jacket:

Kathakali from the southern-most tip of India, Kerala, is characterised by its exaggerated and extravagant style that delves into mythology for its sustenance. The form has been shrouded in mystery and the book tries to demystify the elaborately defined body kinetics and the eloquent hand gestures enhanced by the stylised make-up and costumes.

About the Author:

Sadanam P V Balakrishnan is a rare blend of the purist and the progressive. A respected performer and guru, Balakrishnan is rated as one of the best teachers of this complicated dance form and teaches in many national and international institutions including ARTA of France. Balakrishnan has won many national and international awards in his long and distinguished performing career. He was a student of Thekkinkattil Ramunni Nair at the Gandhi Seva Sadanam Kathakali Academy and Kizhupadam Kumaran Nair.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
