An enthralling double bill - a dance performance and a music performance - of some of the most acclaimed classical art forms of India by highly accomplished artistes, in one evening

The dance segment features three renowned dancers performing three of the great classical dance styles of India - KUCHIPUDI , MOHINIATTAM AND KATHAK. Kuchipudi is presented by Kalaimamani Uma Muralikrishna , mohiniattam by Methil Devika and kathak by Anjana Jha, coming together for the very first time in this Soorya Global Festival series.

In the music segment, enjoy a Jugal Bandhi (union of two styles) of hindustani and carnatic styles of Northern and Southern India in two of the great classical stringed instruments - Veena and Sitar. While the veena is the quintessential symbol of South Indian (carnatic) music, the sitar is the celebrated symbol of North Indian (hindustani) music. Maestro Anantha Padmanabhan (veena) and Ustad Rafique Khan (sitar) will be accompanied by Sudha Ranjith on vocals , Anil on mridangam and M. Jayan on tabla.
