Dance duet celebrates the cosmic power of Lord Shiva on the occasion of Dasara Festival!

Classical dance forms Bharatanatyam and Kathak, presented here in a duet, glorify the mighty power and strength of Lord Shiva. The dance is performed to Swami Dayanand Saraswati’s devotional composition ‘Bho Shambo’ in raga Revathi. The dancers through synchronized movements depict the many resplendent characteristics of Shiva; his matted hair with snake coiled around his neck, ash smeared on his body, the river Ganga flowing out of his matted hair, his cosmic dance as Nataraja. The recital blends the energetic Nritta of Bharatanatyam with the grace of Kathak, and concludes with Kathak Chakkars and Bharatanatyam Bramharis.

Bringing together the beauty and techniques of two distinct Indian classical dance forms this recital was choreographed collectively by Sonali Loomba (Kathak), Sophia Salingaros (Bharatanatyam), Smrithi Suresh (Bharatanatyam), Cyenthia Vijayakumar (Kathak) and performed by them to the song “Bho Shambo” sung by Kartik Raman with Arjun Ravi Shankar on the saxophone, both IndianRaga Fellows. Kartik also arranged the music.
