Guru Purnima is special not only for the Sapta Maharishis, but to all those who have trained under the Guru Shishya Parampara. As monsoon takes over our city with its thunder and lightning, the classical dance fraternity of Bengaluru is not far behind. The jingle of bells and rhythmic taps of the dancers’ feet are as thunderous and enjoyable as nature’s showers.
While many events are conducted throughout the year by various institutions, the specialty of Mūlam, meaning the roots, comes from the purpose that it upholds and celebrates the Guru-Shishya Parampara, a concept unique to India.
Shambhavi School of Dance, under the able guidance of Guru Vyjayanthi Kashi, is all geared up to host the 7th edition of this annual event in association with Indian Council for Cultural Relations, on 15th July 2022 at A.D.A Rangamandira, J C Road, Bengaluru from 4.30 pm onwards.
