The compositions of Swathi Thirunal and Balamuralikrishna embody the complete and synergistic elements of music and dance.As composers for dance, their works were a fine balance of rhythm and gait—with much scope for panchanadai (the five basic gaits) and theermanams (rhythmic patterns)—making the pieces highly danceable. As musicians, their ragas (scales) and lyrics lent themselves so well to abhinaya (expressions), that in the hands of sensitive musicians and soulful dancers, had the ability to move the audience.

Join us as Bhaskar’s Arts Academy explores the compositions of these seminal composers through music and dance!
