Smitha Rajan is a third-generation exponent of Mohiniyattam, a key figure in the drive to revitalize classical Indian dance globally. The granddaughter of legendary artist Kalamandalam Kalyanikutty Amma, she has played a crucial role in reintroducing the general public to the core tenets of her art form. A traditionalist by all accounts, we are proud to announce her new series on Mohiniyattam compositions.
The padam titled, 'Padam Kanden Shyamala,' is now exclusively available on NatyaSutraOnline.com. This series chronicles the mesmerizing bliss a mortal must endure in the presence of Lord Krishna. The entire program is divided into sections with detailed explanations, demonstrations, and a live performance.
