This product treats you to the radiance and richness of padams, the lyrical component of Bharathanatyam which presents a vast canvas for a performing artiste. The emotion of love with its myriad manifestations has been interpreted by 'Padmabhushan' Smt. Kalanidhi Narayanan, the legendary abhinaya exponent. The devotion to the supreme being, the love of mother for child or just the earhly but intense man-woman attraction with the concomittant pangs of separation and the joys of reunion have been vividly brought out by the vateran with the help of five pulsating Tamil padams.
It is a mind blowing medley of lyrics, lilting music and abhinaya that transports you to a different world.
