Dance and Drama
Young dancers resembling lotus flowers perform Bharata-natyam, a classical south Indian temple dance. These artists are from USA,Canada,Mexico,India and UK.They are traveling in 27 different cities across North America. . Using intricate hand gestures, dance movements and facial expressions, the girls tell a story about a divine lover and beloved, accompanied by intricate rhythm and melodies. Bharata-natyam is said to be the embodiment of music in visual form, a ceremony and an act of devotion.
Dancers and actors join with accomplished devotional singers and musicians to transport you on a musical journey across time, into a transcendent realm of sacred mantras where every word is a song, every step a dance. A meditative soundscape of incantations chanted by yogis in previous ages includes the maha-mantra, the great chant for deliverance.
