Bharatanatyam ~ Meenakshi Srinivasan

Posted by Syam on November 28, 2017 | 9 Comments

Bharatanatyam, a pre-eminent Indian classical dance form presumably the oldest classical dance heritage of India is regarded as mother of many other Indian classical dance forms. Conventionally a solo dance performed by women, it initiated in the Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu and eventually flourished in South India. Theoretical base of this form traces back to ‘Natya Shastra’, the ancient Sanskrit Hindu text on the performing arts.

Sharing here few moments from Meera Bhajan , performed by charismatic Meenakshi Srinivasan.
