Sparkling dancer Amrita

Soundarya Natiya Kalalaya Foundation (Ghatkopar) presented their talented disciple Amrita Natraj  in Bharatnatyam recital in the festival organized by the Shivali Cutural Society of India at the Mysore association auditorium, Matunga. The performance was noteworthy for its expressional quality and command over the technique of the dance style .

Amrita Natraj is the disciple of accomplished Bharatnatyam exponent  and Carnatic Music Vocalist Guru Padmini Radhakrishnan, who heads the Soundarya Natya Kalalaya Foundation in Ghatkopar . Over the years, Padmini has trained several aspirants in the field of Bharatanatyam and her disciples have performed for various prestigious festivals and won accolades too. Amrita commenced her performance with invocations, followed with Khamas Dharu Varnam "Maate Malayadhwaja" describing the varied magnificient and virile qualities of Godess Maduria Meenakshi.

The dancer portrays the extra-ordinary beauty of the Goddess and the one who has an excellent command over fine arts and also as the killer of the demon i.e. Mahisa. In the Anupallavi, the dancer enacts as to how Goddess Chamundi is created from the sweat of the eye brows to kill the demon i.e. Raktabeeja. Chamundi kills the demon Raktabeeja and drinks his blood completely and dances with the garland of skulls. With large expressive eyes and fine "angika abhinaya" Amrita does full justice to this number. Further on, Amrita performed a rare composition of Papa Nashan Shiva "enna tavam seidhana" in which the composer asks what penance did you do to Yashoda to get Para Brahma call you a mother.

Besides the childhood pranks of little Krishna, this number established the unique Vatsalya between little Krishna and mother Yashoda. Amrita concluded her performance with Hamsa Nandi "Shankara Shri Giri" alongwith bringi and other bhutaganas.
