This is a small tribute to Gurus and Maestros.

I have tried to get all the gurus and maestros that I have listened to, watched performing and interacted with thus far. There are many more young outstanding performers whom I have watched and interacted with, but have not included along with these visionaries. I am sure I will in due course of time.

Bharata Natyam or Bharatanatyam (Tamil: பரதநாட்டியம்) is a classical dance form originating in Tamil Nadu, India.

Natyam is usually accompanied by the classical music. It has its inspirations from the sculptures of the ancient temple of Chidambaram. Bharata Natyam comes from the words Bhava (Expression), Raga (Music), Tala (Rhythm) and Natya (Classic Indian Musical Theatre). Today, it is one of the most popular and widely performed dance styles and is practiced by many dancers all over the world.

I have had the privilege of capturing very eminent artists and gurus including Smt Vijayantimala bali, Malavika surukkai, Alarmel Valli, Saroja Vaidyanathan, Geeta chandran and many young and brilliant performers who will carry the torch for long time to come… enjoy..
