As part of the Pravah series, the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) presented the Kathak recital by two talented dancers – Indrayanee Mukherjee and Akhila S. Nair – at the Experimental Theatre, The performance was noteworthy for its innovative and rhythmic quality.

Indrayanee and Ahila are the talented disciples of accomplished Kathak exponent and SNA Award winner, Guru Uma Dogra. The performance commenced with the 'Pancha jathi Sadd Guru Shiv Stotra' that was captivating for its rhythmic and divine quality. Incorporating the majesty and the glory of Lord Shiva with excellent musical support, made a fine start to the performance, creating a fine impact on the audience

Both Indrayanee and Akhila make a fine team, due to their striking stage presence and the involvement with the dance, reflects on their devotion and the training that they have received. Indrayanee is definitely senior but Akhila's sincere and enthusiatic approach, makes their performance a pleasure to behold which was quite evident in 'Kreeda', wherein they play with the rhythmic cycle of 15 beats. The ashtapadi of Jayadeva 'Sakhi Hee Keshi Madan' incorporated the inter-realtionship between Radha and Krishna with a subtle and pleasing manner.

The dancers received fine orchestral support from Guru Uma Dogra for choreography, Tabla and ashtapadi composition by Vinayak Netke, Pakhawaj by Satyaprakash Mishra, vocal by Vaibhav M and sarangi by Sandeep Mishra. On the whole, a fairly talented duo.
