Natyanjali, Swaranjali: The Language of Indian Music and Dance
Berklee faculty, visiting artists, and students representing different countries will present the language of Indian classical dance and music. Accompanied by Berklee’s Indian Music Ensemble, the performance will focus on nritta (footwork/movements) and nritya (facial expression) to narrate the beautiful language of the Indian classical dance tradition. The ensemble will explore music from India, lush vocal arrangements, and an eclectic blend of traditional (Carnatic and Hindustani) music, folk songs, and contemporary Indian music as well as Western instrumentation. Through original choreography and compositions, the performance strives to showcase the rich diversity of Indian music and dance.
