R. Jayalakshmi – Bharathanatayam
On 06th May 2016 (Friday) at 6.30 PM; R. Jayalakshmi presented an excellent bharathanatayam recital at VDS. This is her second performance and she did it very well. The dancer is very energetic through the last item thillana. She is trained very well by her guru Kalaiselvi Ramesh.
Her selections of the items were fine and all of them were very lengthy. Invocatory item jathiswaram and devaram in naatai ragam both were fine. The rather lengthy varnam lalguids shangamukapriya – She enacted the sancharibahava very well, answered the jathis neatly especially with the support of orchestra members. Durge dance was nergatic with her lean body. She depicted the abhinayam very well for vishmakara kannan.
Musical support; vocal by Roshini Ganesh, Mridangam by Gajendra Ganesan, violin by M.S. Kannan and flute by Devarajan was fine and enhanced the dance beautifully.
