HAMSA – Jhanana, a Live-Streamed Show
August 1 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“The sound of her bells “Jhanana Jhanana” replicated the heartbeat.
The rhythm coincided with the breath.
Every dance move she made took her to a world that she had fallen in love with.”
JHANANA – A Live-Streamed Show
Saturday August 1st 8-9pm PST
“JHANANA” is translated as the magical sound of the dancers’ anklets. The sound of the anklets is said to purify the atmosphere and transcend the soul of the dancer and her audience. In the main dance piece of the show our attention is brought to the anklets of Rajasthani princess Mirabai who dances in abandon in a frenzy of devotion to Krishna. In the last piece we encounter a lovely lass who is dancing in dedication to Lord Vishnu. Her anklets are jingling – “jhanana jhanana”.
About the Dancer: Yamini Kalluri
Yamini Kalluri, a professional Kuchipudi dancer, has been celebrated by the New York Times and BBC as being a young Kuchipudi sensation. A disciple of legendary guru, Padmasri Dr. Sobha Naidu, Yamini began exhibiting signs of her extraordinary talent and dedication to dance at a very early age. At the age of 12 she not only began performing throughout India but also began teaching. At 18 she began performing internationally at various prestigious festivals, offering workshops in the UK, the US, Russia, Argentina and Canada.
A world-class dancer, Yamini is known for her grace, agility and uncompromising perfection. Aiming to bring a new face to Kuchipudi, her ambition and passion led her to move to New York where she now trains in ballet and modern at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary dance and performs and teaches Kuchipudi full time.
