Yakshagana - Kadalivana
Sunday 30th July 2017, H N Kalakshetra, Jayanagara, NammaBengaluru

It was a fantastic performance by Sri AnanthaPadmanabha Dashavatara Yakshagana Mandali, Perduru in Bengaluru.

The program was organized by "Karnataka - Yakshadhama", Mangaluru, with the leadership of Sri Janardhan Hande and the team. Every year, Yakshagana program is being organized in Bengaluru in memory of Yajamana Parampalli Sridhar hande, with the sponsorship by Karnataka Bank and Maiyyas.

Veteran yakshagana Artist Sudhindra Holla is active member in the group and also RaghuPrasad Haryadi.

The first prasanga was ChandraHasa, where DushtaBuddhi, son Madana and others. The story line is how DushtaBuddhi wanted to kill Chandrahasa and sends a letter with his son Madana, but ChandraHasa gets married to DushtaBuddhi's daughter, without his knowledge.  In the end DushtaBuddhi realizes his evil plans would not work and becomes a Subuddhi.

CHANDRAVALI - A humorous Yakshagana dance drama, where SriKrishna, in the disguise of Radha goes to Chandravali's house. Her mother in law, an old woman, fantastic dance and comedy performance with lazy son, acts only as Yajamaana. Finally Chandravali and her husband feel happy that SriKrishna Parmatma visited their house. All the characters were high energetic with beautiful dance to excellent singing by Bhagavataru and the dialogues.

 Felicitations to : Gopalaksrishna Somayaji of SLV, Gokuldas Pai of Karnataka Bank, P Sudarashana Maiyya of Maiyyas, and Subramanya Bhat from Perduru Yakshagana Mandali.

It requires amazing stamina to perform as Yakshagana artist since he has to continuously dance to singing and to the tune of Mridanga and Chande and then deliver the dialogues of the story.

It was a well organized program.
