At her recent lecdem, Vyjayanthimala acknowledged her debt to her dance and music gurus including Vazhuvoor Ramaiah Pillai for teaching her such exquisite and unusual compositions
Lovelorn nayikas; an adorable, complaining little Krishna; gopikas dancing with delight in Brindavan … all of them came alive on stage at Dr. Vyjayanthimala Bali's lecture-demonstration titled Abhinayam-Anubhavam. It was held as the Srimati Ammanni Iyengar Endowment Birth Centenary Celebration Special Programme.
Interestingly, she did the entire lecdem in a seated position and also sang to the delight of the audience, though she had vocal support of course. Her emotive skills, intrinsic dignity and grace, and a choice of compositions which ranged from the rare to lesser-known ones and which spanned a range of rasas made it an enriching experience for the audience. Vyjayanthimala acknowledged her debt to her dance and music gurus including Vazhuvoor Ramaiah Pillai for teaching her such exquisite and unusual compositions.
She started off with the Todi raga, aadi thalam composition by Ghanam Krishna Iyer “Ella Arumaigalum” and went on to a padam by the famed 17th-century composer Karvetinagaram Sarangapani “Maaname Bhooshanamu” in a serene Shankarabharanam with misrachapu talam.
