It was a blessing and honour to dance with Bhavajan Kumar at the “Radha Kalyanam” event at our local temple.
In this song, titled Chaliye, Radha & Krishna suggest going to the gardens by the Jamuna river. When Radha hears the birds chirping, she thinks “What are they saying”? Krishna confirms that even the birds are speaking of their love.
A recipient of the Vazhuvoor Ramiah Pillai Endowment Award from the Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana, Bhavajan is a Canadian born male dancer who has been learning Bharatanatyam for the past 15 years, and now resides in Chennai.
We only had about 30 interrupted minutes to choreograph & practice before performing, which made the experience fun, and a little stressful!
