Mohiniyattam Lessons by Dr.Neena Prasad

NatyaSutra’s newest offering is Guru Neena Prasad teaching students the Ananda Bhairavi Swarajathi. Swarajathi is a Carnatic musical composition in Mohiniyattam that is lyrical in nature. Swarajathis are usually devotional and often speak about the courage and triumph of the deity. Ananda Bhairavi Swarajathi is simple but has complexities in its rhythm. Dr. Neena Prasaad teaches the students individual components of each part of composition and elaborates on the performance's technical aspects.  The learner here is Guru Neena Prasad's disciple Thomas Vo Van Tao, who hails from France. Bringing his own masculine charm to a traditionally feminine art form, Thoma's Swarajathi performance guides the learners through the nuances of this classical composition..
