Performed by Rama Vaidyanathan
The Lowry, 18 June 2011
These Milapfest events are like violets by a mossy stone: great hidden joys that should be brought into the light.
Tonight, there were five dances all told, all in praise of Krishna. Each dance, introduced by Rama Vaidyanathan herself, took as its subject an incident from Krishna’s life.
The dancing was very fine indeed: graceful, expressive and jaunty too, when the singing and percussion took on that rat-a-tat-tat quality (perhaps this is not the correct technical term?) and the rhythm became so much more emphatic. As for the four musicians and singers, their accomplished playing added colour and shading to the consummate dancing of the wonderful Rama Vaidyanathan.
Future Milapfest events can be seen here.
