kathak Dance

About the Artist:
Of the select band of Indian dancers, who have made an indelible impression in the very first appearance on the concert stage, are internationally renowned Kathak Duo - Nalini Kamalini, the devoted disciples of Kathak Maestro, Guru Jitendra Maharaj of Varanasi Gharana, the trend-setter of temple style of Kathak dancing.The sisters are blessed with rare artistic qualities of natural expression, grace, sweetness, clarity and perfection and known for their refined sensibilities and subtlety. Their style pleases both the aesthete and purist; it is marked with an elegant ease and sensuousness borne out of a complete understanding of the form.The liberated Nalini and Kamalini move out unobtrusively into the open spaces of the soul. Their performances are, therefore, not mere recitals but are veritable banquets of the soul. Art connoisseurs acknowledge them as celestial dancing nymphs. The stage presence of the two sisters is striking their emotiveness deep and pure, their artistry specially their footwork immaculate. The close similarity in their physical appearance heightens the fluidity of the presentation leading to an overall mesmeric effect of visual continuity on the stage.Well versed in the allied arts of music and literature, the duos are as esteemed throughout India as they are abroad. Often they are invited to present this traditional form before visiting dignitaries in the Parliament, Rashtrapati Bhawan and have participated in several National and International festivals of repute in various parts of the world viz. UK, USA, Germany, France, Spain, Norway and Middle East. In the most challenging atmosphere of mixed race of students, the duo conducted lecture-cum-demonstrations in various leading Universities/Academic Institutions of the world for cultural awareness among the youth. Lectures in Oxford, Cambridge, Lei den, Manchester University, London School of Economics were of great success. They have been decorated with various awards. they have set world record dancing at the height of 18,000ft at Kailash Mansarovar in the year 2003.Their cultural voyage is still under way.
