Citadel - - EVENTS -

April saw the Amritanjali Festival 2018, a festival of Clas­si­cal dance and mu­sic, which opened to a packed au­di­ence at the Amritanjali Stu­dio. An ini­tia­tive of renowned Bharatanatyan danseuse, Dr Shashikala Ravi (Founder Direc­tor of Amritanjali Dance School of Bharatanatyam in Pune), this festival had per­for­mances by stal­warts Guru Lakshmi Viswanathan, Shubashree R and Dr Shashikala Ravi. The festival com­menced with an in­vo­ca­tory per­for­mance by Dr Shashikala Ravi, who per­formed two com­po­si­tions of Ma­haraja Swathi Thirunal. Guru Lakshmi Viswanathan pre­sented Shringra Man­jari, a col­lec­tion of Padams, Ash­ta­padi and Ab­hang, bring­ing out Shringara Bhava. She ended with Marathi Ab­hang Brin­da­vani in Raag Bhim­palas. Shubashree R gave a very lively vo­cal con­cert and the high­light of her singing was Maathey and Saa­m­a­gana Lo­ley in Hin­dolam. The in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion with Guru Lakshmi Viswanathan was most ed­uca­tive and stim­u­lat­ing, with her shar­ing her jour­ney in dance. She was all praise for Dr Shashikala Ravi, for her per­for­mance, ex­cel­lent festival ar­range­ments, the Amritanjali Stu­dio, its am­bi­ence, the close in­ter­ac­tion with the au­di­ence it pro­vided, etc. What a grand suc­cess.
