Indian Classical Dances
Indian Classical Dances
Description

From the Jacket:

India's rich cultural legacy has been founded on the abiding faith of the Indians in the divine power, whose worship had found expression through dance. 'Bhakti' or devotion was the underlying essence of the various dance forms that developed in India.

Indian Classical Dances is a unique presentation of the eight classical dance styles - Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniyattam, Odissi and Sattriya, through a concise portrayal of the background of each dance form, the salient features, format of presentation, music and costume. The simplistic approach of the narration coupled with the unique collection of photographs, will enable the lay reader to visualize, comprehend and appreciate the diverse dance forms of India.

About the Author:

Hailing from an illustrious family of freedom fighters, Shobhana Narayan is one of the foremost and renowned dancer 'par excellence', whose name has become synonymous with Kathak. Her individualistic, contemporary and dynamic choreography shows a unique blend of both the schools of this dance form. Her in-depth researches on the development of dance in general, and Kathak in particular, have found expression in many of her works and have received great acclaim.

Her creativity and contribution to the art has been admired and recognized through numerous awards including the Government of India President's awards the 'Padmashri' (1992) and the 'Sangeet Natak Akademi' Award' (1999-2000).

She is also a member of the Indian Audits and Accounts Service. She is married to Dr. Herbert Traxl (Austrian Ambassador) and has a son.

Testimonials
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
