Varnam / Varnam & Jathis Vol 1 - a practice aid
Varnam is the most important component of Bharathanatyam that ageless and exquisite dance form of India. True to its name, it lends colour to a dance recital and embellishes it with variety and vibrancy.
This audio CD, developed and marketed by eParampara Infotainment under their Kalakriya Series, exposes the aficionados of Indian classical dance to the aural delights of Varnam.
From a rich choice of varnams for bharathanatyam that comprises of Padavarnams, Svara jathis, Dharu Varnams and Tana Varnams, it can be a one source point for students of Bharathanatyam as it presents the music(only) of a few Varnams(supported by the text and translation), interesting Jathis (or Theermanams) for the benefit of students of Bharthanatyam. Using this students may choreograph varnams according to their choice using the jathis.
The audio CD treats the dancer to a judicious mix of few traditional theermanams that have been in practice for over three decades and also those composed by contemporary dance gurus and laya vidwans.
An ideal learning tool that readily makes available a variety of Varnams & Jathis.
