Kathak performance wonderstruck Mysureans

The seventh day of Dasara Celebrations in the city reached new heights with the Kathak and Hindustani music performance by ‘7 Essence’ team of Murad Ali Khan from New Delhi at the Mysuru Palace premises, on Friday evening.

Kathak, one of the ten major forms of Indian classical dance started off with a ten minute ‘thath’ sequence, with a slower graceful movement of wrists, neck and eyebrows by dancer Mahura Shankar and received thunderous applause from the audience.

Each section when completed had a punctuation mark by the dancers, a sharp turn of the head. Each ankle adorned with ghungroos, the dancer’s rapid movements and footwork perfectly timed to the musical beats (tala) and tempos, and the footwork sequences mesmerised the audience.
