Songs of the Blue God
“Songs of the Blue God” the 3-day festival at the Sampradaya Theatre invoked feelings of various kinds. Watching our company dancers and orchestra perform live with a wonderful audience, made it almost seem surreal after what the world has experienced over the past year.
We are so thankful to one and all who supported us and looking forward to curating many more of such festivals.
Choreographed by Artistic Director Lata Pada, dancers performed Krishna Padams from the Bharatanatyam repertoire that are Abhinaya pieces. This was performed with live music by established Carnatic musicians from Canada.
