Indian Dance: Kathak Yoga (Part 2 of 2)

Resource Type: 

Witness the revolutionary dance technique of Kathak yoga created by Pandit Chitresh Das. Kathak yoga combines  innovation within tradition. The dancers (Antara Bhardwaj and Rachna Nivas) perform rhythmic composition through footwork and other movement while simultaneously reciting the underlying rhythmic structure (theka), singing the corresponding melody (lehara), and playing the tabla, harmonium or finger cymbals (manjira).
