Cornell Concert Series presents Nrityagram Dance Ensemble.
Nrityagram: Songs of Love & Devotion
Nrityagram blends Odissi, a classical Indian dance, with contemporary concepts to transport viewers to enchanted worlds.  In Songs of Love and Longing, two dancers explore the Gita Govinda,  a romantic ballad about the immortal love of Radha and Krishna. It is a song of love and longing that reflects the Vaishnava belief that all humankind is feminine energy (Radha) constantly seeking union with the one male godhead (Krishna). They appear with their live music ensemble.
