India is the land of different cultures, festivals, rituals along with many types of Classical Dances and Classical Music. It would be very inequitable to describe the importance of Indian Classical Dance and Music in few words. So, I would like to represent it through my blog. It is believed that Indian Classical Music has connection with soul of Gods. Today, i will give you a good reason to read about Classical Dances.
One of the most fascinating Indian Classical dance is Kathakali, is a classical dance form of Kerala. Well, i am a big fan of this dance form. Actually, i have no experience of this dance performance but i had been amazed everytime attending my mentor’s act on Kathakali, if i looked into his big dramatic eyes once so i could not look any where else for the time.
As every word has its own meaning in terms to justify it. So, Kathkali means Story- Play. The significance of Kathkali is Well-Known due to its heavy, cheerful make-up, and customs. As i told about that Indian dancers are connected with super natural powers like god. Here, is the proof to justify my sayings that Kathkali dance bestowed themes from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, along with various Hindu epics, legends, and myths. The aspect of Kathakali dance include both pure dance (Nritya) as well as mime ( Abhinaya). Aharya abhinaya is given more importance in Kathakali dance which means the use of customs, ornaments like heavy jewelry and extreme facial make up are key concept of this dance form. Amusingly, in Kathakali, the entire body includes skeleton and muscles and even, the smallest facial muscle is used to depict the emotions.
Indian traditional dance has a great power of motivation.
Especially for dance lovers..
