Yaksagana and it's Sanskrit Sources
Yaksagana and it's Sanskrit Sources
Description
From the Jacket:

Dancing is an art. It is associated with human and is closely related to culture and civilization of a country and its people.

The art of Yaksagana comes under the Dest type of dance. The costal districts of Karnatak viz. North-Kanara, and South-Kanara are known well for the sounds of Cande, Maddale graceful dance, enrapturing costumes and make-up and melodious music of Yaksagana.

The fine art Yaksagana is a controversial art among the folk as well as classical arts of India. The term 'gana' signifies music and such Yaksagana means a particular style of music with characteristics of its own, distinct from the other two systems of Indian music, Hindustani and Karnataki. The art Yaksagana depicts ten incarnations of Lord Visnu. In olden days this art was performed for ten days. One story of incarnation for one day.

In the present work Yaksagana and it's Sanskrit Sources. Dr. G.S. Hegde has done a commendable job in unearthing the elements of Yaksagana, a wide spread folk-art of Karnatak enshrined in several Sanskrit works. He has taken pains to go to the original sources. He has traveled far and wide to meet and discuss with the living exponents of Yaksagana.

A study of the work reveals also Dr. Hegde's wide experience, sound scholarship and indepth thinking.
