HERITAGE SERIES 2000 (article first published : 2000-03-18)

To commemorate its 40th Anniversary, the Indian Academy of SA will present what they believe will be a fabulous overseas show with their Heritage Series 2000 which features a selection of top versatile artistes.

Among these are Srekala Bharath and Troupe who will perform a variety of Indian classical and folk dances in the major Indian languages. Srekala Bharath, one of India's top dancers and winner of the national Kalaimamani Award for her outstanding dance talent, will be accompanied by a group of four talented students from the KH Sarasa Dance Academy in Madras. This is the school from which Srekala Bharath herself graduated in classical dance.

Accompanying them is a dynamic singer who presents a vast repertoire of songs in the film, classical and semi-classical modes and is also a specialist singer for dance music. Also appearing will be dancers Rangarajan Lavanya and Srinivasan Pavithra and the group will be accompanied by a veena player, a violinist and a drummer.

One of the highlights of Heritage Series 2000 will be the appearance of the outstanding classical (Carnatic) vocalist, Aruna Ranganathan who presented two memorable concerts organised by the Indian Academy in October last year. She will be accompanied by the highly rated Indian violinist Hemlata and the brilliant mrindangamist Sivanathan Pillay of Durban.

All these performers will feature in the St. Thyagaraja Music Festival in the Playhouse on May 6, at the Bharathiyar Festival and in Shree Vaidyanatha Eeswarar Alayam's new hall in Umgeni Road, Durban. The Heritage Series 2000 will also be presented in Phoenix, Chatsworth, Tongaat, Verulam, Durban, Gauteng and Eastern Cape. More details from Mrs C. Naidoo on (031) 400-2725.
