Kathakali
Description

From the Jacket:

Kathakali from the southern-most tip of India, Kerala, is characterised by its exaggerated and extravagant style that delves into mythology for its sustenance. The form has been shrouded in mystery and the book tries to demystify the elaborately defined body kinetics and the eloquent hand gestures enhanced by the stylised make-up and costumes.

About the Author:

Sadanam P V Balakrishnan is a rare blend of the purist and the progressive. A respected performer and guru, Balakrishnan is rated as one of the best teachers of this complicated dance form and teaches in many national and international institutions including ARTA of France. Balakrishnan has won many national and international awards in his long and distinguished performing career. He was a student of Thekkinkattil Ramunni Nair at the Gandhi Seva Sadanam Kathakali Academy and Kizhupadam Kumaran Nair.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
