36th year Art festival 2010 - 31st December, 2010
Smt Uma Muralikrishna presented a Kuchipudi Dance recital. She commenced her performance with a Anjali and Ganesha Pancharatnam.
The ganesha Pancharatnam had jathis indispersed. Uma went to perform a Ashta Nayika piece penned by Guru Madurai Muralidharan, The bhava was neat and this was in Ragamalika with Swara patterns.The Thillana by Kavi Uthukadu Venkatasubbaiyyar was well choreographed and Kuldeep Pai singing was very pleasing.The whole performance was a neat, simple presentation.
Smt Ambika Kameshwarans disciples presented a thematic piece on the life of Ramana Maharishi. The songs were all dedicated to the Shrine and lord of Thiruvannamalai.The openness of people from different states paying respects and bowing to Arunachaleshwara was well brought out. A fitting finale in Praise of the supreme Lord as the Dance and Music session of this year finishes with a peaceful divine pleasant note.
Wishing all the Rasikas, Artists, Readers a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year - 2011.
