Indian Folk Dances Extravaganza (May 8, 2014)

Consulate General of India, Shanghai organized an evening of Indian folk dances extravaganza at Shanghai Center on May 8, 2014 by Kalakshetra Repertory Company. This was the 2nd time Kalakshetra presented their performance before the Shanghai audience. Kalakshetra is currently touring China as a part of 'Glimpses of India Festival' organized during '2014: India-China Year of Friendly Exchanges'. Presenting various kinds of folk dances which represent the priceless artistic traditions of India, the 29-member troupe led by dance director Mr Haripadman enthralled the audience with their performance. Each dance composition was carefully crafted with intricate detailing in synchronization, music, choreography, thematic costumes and light & stage effects. The performance ended with the audience giving a standing ovation to the performers.

The performance was preceded by an 'India-China Friendship Medley' sung by Mr Megh Kalyanasundaram. The medley was unique in terms of seamless rendition of popular Chinese songs on Friendship (Peng You) and Love (Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin) with Indian songs on Friendship and Love with similar mood and melody woven in to it. The medley, aptly suited to the theme of the Year of Friendly Exchanges, was given a thunderous applause by the audience with many singing along.
