Varnam is an important component of Bharathanatyam that ageless and exquisite dance form of India. True to its name, 'Varnam' lends colour , variety and verve to the dance recital and serves as a perfect yardstick to judge the quality of the dance and the competence of the dancer.
This product developed by Swathi Soft Solutions under their Sanskriti Series, eminent danseuse 'Nrithya Choodamani' Priyadarsini Govind sets out to explore 'Varnam' in a structured manner and provides a panoptic view of this colourful element through a dazzling demonstration & recital of two exciting Varnams:
(i) "Manavi..." composed by Ponnaya, one of the haloed Thanjavur Quartet in raga Sankarabharanam set to Adi Tala is amorous in content and carries allegorical description of the yearning and ultimate union of the soul with the divinity-Lord Brihadisvara of Thanjavur.
(ii)"Nee Manamirangi..." composed by Andavan Pichai in raga Lathangi and set to Adi Tala, stresses the 'bhakti' (devotion) element by extolling the glory of Lord Muruga.
This product features exhaustive video demo on Trikala Jathi with variations, Arudi, Jathis, Sahitya, Sanchari,Sarpanadai & Thattimettu, Mukthyisvara, Charanam, Charana Svaras, Svarakshara, Makuta Svara. Besides those crisp and coherent explanations, the product carries some dazzling demonstrations by the danseuse herself.
It comes as a combo pack containing a DVD with full video demos and recital of the above two varnams by 'Nrithya Choodamani' Priyadarsini Govind and an Audio CD that carries the complete audio tracks of Varnams demonstrated in the DVD.
Varnam-the sum & substance is an ideal learning tool that demonstrates how technology can serve as an effective vehicle to present the nuances of Bharathanatyam.
