Padam and Javali: These are important forms featured in dance performances but they are also presented in the concert genre. One of the outstanding features of Indian culture is the development of the concept of Sringara and bhakthi to a high degree. As for Padams, the theme is usually inspired by Nayaka Nayaki bhava or in praise of a deity. The music is slow, dignified and flows in a natural manner. The raga bhava blossoms excellently in Padams and a fine balance is maintained between the words and music. Javalis are in colloquial language and belong to the sphere of light classical music. It is only its catchy tune that has lent it a place in dance and music concerts. Several composers in 19th and 20th century have contributed to the Javali repertoire. The Padam and Javali owe their special status to the family members of Veena Dhanammal (specially T Brinda, Balasaraswathi and T Viswanathan) of the Tanjore tradition who are noted for their exquisite rendition.

In this Workshop, the renowned Carnatic musician Kiranavali Vidyasankar (a disciple of T Brinda herself), will collaborate with SIFAS Bharatanatyam Gurus P N Vikas and Nishanthie Jeganathan. Vidhushi Kiranavali will demonstrate how Padams and Javalis are sung typically in a Carnatic concert in contrast to a Bharatanatyam Dance recital with SIFAS Bharatanatyam Gurus in action.

This is a rare & unique opportunity for SIFAS students of Carnatic music and Bharatanatyam to learn from Master musicians and dancers.
