The eightfold hymn of praise is sung to please Shankara who is Rudra i.e. to be feared. Music and dance composed by Guru Pt. Rajendra Ganganiji
The 7 notes of sangeet Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Da Ni is beautifully woven into this recital. The sounds, vocals and movement are also seamlessly in the 7 notes.
- Teen Taal
Kathak Shudha nritya is based on Teen taal. Teental (or tintal, trital; Hindi: तीन ताल) is the most common tala of Hindustani music. The structure of tintal is so symmetrical that it presents a very simple rhythmic structure against which a performance can be laid. In this performance students are going to perform Shiv Panchakshar, Paran , Tode, Tihai, Kavit and Jugalbandhi in Drut laya i.e. fast speed.
This song is about dreams of wandering mind. The wandering mind has some wandering thoughts. It beats crazily and takes crazy breaths. It wishes there should be someone in this world with whom you can see this dream. It wants the strength to live the dream.
Tarana is musical and rhythmical treat based on the seven notes of music, which are arranged in a manner to create an abstract musical pattern. The dancer follows this musical pattern and create movements and images in space which coincide with the notes of the music. This composition rejoices the ecstasy of melody and rhythm to celebrate the joy of life.
As the festival of Holi bestows the world with vibrate colours Krishna make sure to tease Radha and her friends, making the whole atmosphere amorous and whimsical.
