Kathak dance is from North India. It features beautiful expressions and expansive rhythms through its dances. Fast foot work, beautiful Chakkars (Pirouettes); a crisp story telling and graceful moves makes it an enjoyable evening for all family. Kathak glides and flows with beautiful Hindustani singing by Divya Khandekar; with a support on Tabla by Ustad Abhinav. Music is adorned and decorated with Vikas Falnikar with his Harmonium music; veteran Imrath Guitarist – Todd Mosby will support with his beautiful music.
Samanvita and Seema Kasthuri will provide padanth – a recitation of rhythmical phrases to support the footwork and body moves of pure dance in Kathak.
Prasanna Kasthuri is a recognized teacher of this art form in Missouri. He has learnt this art from Dr. Mayarao from Bengaluru; from Padmavibhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj ji and his disciple – Guru Saswathi Sen.
Prasanna has presented hundreds of dance performances. He is a great singer, drummer and also a supporter of art.
