First part of the program - performances by
Shruthi Abhishek and Meghah Vuppalapaty.

Second half with Divya Devaguptapu presenting
Bhavanubuthi celebrating Kshetraya. This a project that celebrates music and dance equally through a soulful genre of padam singing in the typical Dhanammal Bani and nuanced abhinayam of Dhananjayan/Kalakshetra bAni. The compositions in this productions have been carefully chosen such that they resonate with the audiences of today, yet are steeped in classicism. A specially created mural of Kshetrayya and Muvvagopala by eminent cartoonist and painter Keshav Venkataraghavan (of The Hindu) will create the perfect setting for the stage.
