International Spring - Indian Evening
This event is led by two extraordinary artists who lead participants on an imaginary journey to India. Pandit Rajesh Gangani, a worldwide known tabla musician, is famous for his virtuosity and original style and Saumya Shukla, kathak dancer, is a disciple of Nrityashri Alaknanda, currently teaching kathak dance at the Amrita Sher-Gil Cultural Centre. The tabla is a membranophone percussion instrument (similar to bongos) consisting of a pair of small drums, able to create a wide variety of different sounds and rhythms. Kathak, literally “story telling,” is an Indian classical dance which expresses the basic feelings of love, fury, peace or happiness through body movement hand gestures.
Participation is free!
