The structure and style of Thillana, the concluding piece in a Bharatanatyam concert distinguished by nimble body movements of the dancer driven by rhythmic syllables set to soul-stirring music, intricate footwork and unerring rhythm, have been unveiled in this product. Tastefully selected and introduced by ‘Nrithya Choodamani’ Priyadarsini Govind, one of the finest exponents of our times, each Thillana in this compilation comes as a solo performance by Priyadarsini or sprightly Anjana Anand or Apoorva Jayaraman, the stupendous students of Priyadarsini.
A wealth of information on thillana by way of Priyadarsini’s rational introduction encompassing the structure, the concomitant adavu patterns, adavu korvais, pancha nadais, attamis and ragas commonly used is a delectable value addition that students will lap up with relish.
