Each a powerhouse in their own right, bharata natyam dancer Priyadarsini Govind and Carnatic musician T. M. Krishna perform a new work interlacing elements of traditional repertoire with improvised segments
Stalwarts, Kalaimamani Priyadarsini Govind and Vidwan TM Krishna, unparalleled stars in their respective fields are coming together to perform their masterpiece Saayujya’. According to Vidwan Krishna Although Carnatic music and Bharatanatyam were part of the same cultural and aesthetic basket they have in certain ways become insulated. He added In fact singing for Bharatanatyam is looked down upon by many concert musicians… [It] is only understood as something that provides the necessary melody, rhythm. Thus, along with Ms Govind, Mr Krishna said that he had attempted to to bring together the essential core elements of Bharatanatyam and Carnatic music in their individual forms and to mesh together as a programme.., Priyadarsini describes this as Music is the life that flows through dance There is innate music in dance and there is inherent dance in music. Understanding the music present in the dance through the eyes of a musician enhances the experience of the dance.
