Event Description : DANCE "Samadrishti" by Sudha Raghunathan and Rama Vaidyanathan 

"SAMADRISHTI” which means looking together and looking at each other with a sense of respect and equanimity, is a collaboration between Chennai based Carnatic singer Sudha Ragunathan and Delhi based Bharatnatyam dancer Rama Vaidyanathan. Both artists have come together to pay tribute to the late Carnatic music maestra ML Vasanthakumari on her 90th birth anniversary. Sudha and Rama will revisit together, some of the compositions popularised by MLV Amma in her concerts as well as in Tamil Cinema.

Rama Vaidyanathan is one of the fore most Bharatanatyam dancers of her generation. She trained intensively under the legendry dancer Yamini Krishnamurthy and the celebrated Guru Saroja Vaidyanathan. In a performance career spanning more than 30 years, Rama has developed her own individual style without forsaking the core principles of her dance form. She brings to her dance a strong sense of conviction aided by her extraordinary flair for choreography. Her technique is grounded and yet there is a fresh approach to the innumerable dance compositions that she has added to the Bharatanatyam repertoire. Her unique thought process has allowed her to push boundaries to explore new themes in the idiom of Bharatanatyam. Having performed at every major dance venue of the world,

Rama has received critical acclaim for maintaining high levels of excellence and aesthetics. She has taken the art of Bharatanatyam to North America, South America, Europe, Russia, Japan, Australia South Korea, China, Sout East Asia, Middle East and Africa. She has been awarded the “Kalaimamani” by the Govt of Tamil Nadu and the “Kalashree” by the Govt of Kerala. Other notable awards are the Sanskriti award from the Sanskriti Pratishthan, Kumar Gandharv Puraskar from the Madhya Pradesh Govt, Nadanamamani from Kartik Fine Arts Chennai, Vani kala Sudhakara from Tyagabrahma Gana sabha Chennai, Nritya Choodamani from Krishna Gana Sabha Chennai. Recently Rama has been declared as the recipient for the Central Sangeet Natak Akademi Puraskar for the year 2017. Rama has had the distinction of performing at the Rashtrapati Bhawan before two Presidents. Sri R Venkatraman and Sri APJ Abdul Kalam. As the Director of Ganesa Natyalaya New Delhi, she has been actively engaged in teaching for more than twenty five years. Rama balances a hectic performance schedule while conducting workshops and master classes all over the world, inspiring a whole generation of dancers.  

Sudha Ragunathan is a Carnatic vocalist and composer from India. She was conferred the Kalaimamani  award by the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1994, Padma Shri (2004) and Padma Bhusan (2015) by the Government of India. She received her initial training in Carnatic music from her mother V. Choodamani. From the age of three, she began to learn bhajan, Hindu devotional songs. Her tutelage continued under B. V. Lakshman. In 1977, she received an Indian government scholarship to study music under a doyenne of Carnatic music, Dr M.L Vasantha Kumari, whose student she remained for thirteen years.

Trained under Dr. ML Vasanthakumari in the gurukula style, it involved considerable amounts of listening to the teacher and other practitioners to absorb their style and oeuvre. Part of her duties involved the accompaniment on the tanpura of her teacher during concerts, and also accompanying her during concerts. In her own words, "A period of 13 years from 1977 to 1990, a phase of complete absorption and internalisation! There was no teaching in a formal atmosphere. We learnt while being with her during the katchheris (concerts). We would record her singing in our minds and then replay it while learning the intricacies. It was a very challenging and different experience and as I had begun learning very early from her, my mind was like a sponge and absorbed whatever I heard".
