Fine show of flamenco and ballet

The dynamic couple, Gaysil and Nash Naubert, presented a fine show of western classical ballet, Flamenco, Ballroom dances and Indian classical music at the St. Andrew's Auditorium in Bandra. The programme was a fine combination of structure, style, substance and music that created a lasting impression on the select audience.

Gaysil is a trained western classical ballet dancer and is versatile with other dances like Flamenco and  ballroom, besides being a gifted singer. Nash is a flutist and an ardent disciple of the veteran Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, both of them make a great team. The programme commenced with invocations to Lord Ganesha with  flute music by Nash, accompanied by Sridhar Parthsarathy on mridangam and Satyajit Talwalkar on tabla. The trio made a great start to the programme.

The solo Flamenco number by Gaysil was the piece-de-resistance of the evening wherein the dancer with the typical black shoes danced to the perfect rhythm with swaying movements. Gaysil danced with a lot of passion and vitality creating a great impression. While the group dances featured the dancers in black and white, it was interesting to watch dancers perform Bharata Natyam to fine rhythm (Raag Malkauns) and the same dancers were seen again with Gaysil, when he enthralled the listeners to Hollywood numbers of Marilyn Monroe and dancing to popular western music.

While Nash performed Raag Jog, Gaysil made a brief appearance as a western classical ballet dancer with the black shoes, dancing on the toes with the gentle sway and movements of the hands that was striking and elegant too. The programme concluded with some popular Bollywood numbers which were performed by male and female dancers. On the whole it was quite an entertaining performance with thrilling classical music.
