Mrinalini Sivakumar – Bharathanatyam

On 16th September 2017 (Saturday) at 6.30 PM: Mrinalini Sivakumar presented her excellent bharathanatyam recital at just 12. She has been trained very well by her guru Sheela Unnikrishnan.

Her performance was marked by elegant foot and limb movements in Jathiswaram of Tanjore quartet, thrikaala jathi alarippu and kouthuvamalika. The varnam in ragam naatai kurunji – she addressed the lengthy jathis neatly and perfectly. Mrinalini has a lean body which is flexible. Bhava for her age is quite good. Her abhinayam for kaa vaa vaa was fine. Hanuman chalisa – in remembrance of MS amma was good selection of the day.

Vocal by Cithrambari Krishnakumar, Mridangam by Guru Bharadwaj, violin by Kalai Arasan, veena by Ananthanarayanan and flute by Devaraj have rendered their fine support.
