East meets West

‘India to Spain: A Journey of Gypsies’, is an evening of ‘Music & Dance’ which will have performances of Indian classical and western dances fused in one. On songs sung by Sovon Hazra, dancers- Paola Santa Cruz (Flamenco) Nandita Kaalan (Bharatanatyam) and Paola Santa Cruz’ 20 Europen students will present a magnificent show. The show is conceptualised on the fact that the roots of flamenco, though somewhat mysterious, lie in the gypsy migration from Rajasthan to Spain between the 9th and 14th centuries. Thus strong resemblance of Indian dance forms such as Kathak, Kathakali, Manipuri and Bharatanatyam forms will be visible in Flamenco. This is a performance that conveys the anguished flashback of the spirit of India, still present in the feeling of today’s Flamenco art. Venue: Epicentre, Gurgaon on June 13. Time: 7.30 pm.
