Dancers who participated in a workshop of rare and authentic Bharatanatya composition from Mysuru Sampradaya pose with Guru Dr. Lalitha Srinivasan and Guru Dr. Padma Sampath
A classical dance workshop was organised by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in association with Mysuru Sampradaya dance experts Dr. Lalitha Srinivasan and Dr. Padma Sampath (disciple of Nala Najaan).
Nala Najaan, an American by birth, had spent 14 years in post-independent India, learning Bhartanatyam both in Mysuru and Thanajavur styles of classical dance and music in those days.
A Bhairavi varna, composed by the Tanjore Quartet, was taught at the workshop. Mrs. Padma shared the nuances of the varna as told and taught to her by her Guru.
The ten-day workshop proved to be a unique learning experience. Another fascinating feature of the workshop was that the dancers practised to music that was recorded in a studio in the 1960s for Nala Najaan by his teachers Mugur Sundaramma and Nanjanagudu Nagarathna-mma who were accomplished disciples of Jetti Thayamma and belonged to the ancestral roots of Nanjanagudu tradition.
