Good News for Bharatanatyam and Tulu Literature lovers: This is Something You Shouldn’t Miss

September 1: On Friday the 6th of September, fans of Bharathanatyam as well as Tulu language literature are in for a treat. Kiran Kamath an Aryabhatta awardee, a disciple of Guru Mithun Shyam of Vaishnavi Natyashala Bangalore, will be giving a Bharathanatyam performance with Tulu Language literature at 8pm, at the Mangalore Ganesha Utsava, Nehru Maidan, Mangalore.

Generally, Bharathanatyam programs have been based on the languages of Tamil and Telugu which are virtually unknown among the Tulu and Konkani speaking people of coastal Karnataka. To popularise Bharathanatyam among the people of the Tulu and Konkani communities, it had to be presented in these languages. This is possibly the first ever production in History, of Tulu Literature in Carnatic music.
In recognition of her efforts with these languages, Kiran was awarded the Aryabhatta International Award in May 2017.
There is a demand for its recognition as an official language of India and to be included in the eighth schedule of the Constitution. In this scenario, to garner support for this movement, and in an effort to bring about the awareness of the glorious history and culture of Tulu, a presentation of an anthem, through Bharathanatyam has been made by Kiran. It speaks about the History and origin of Tulunadu, the land, its temples, culture, language, literary works, warriors, festivals and much more. It is also an appeal for the recognition of the language.
This Tulunada Nadageethe is an exclusive creation, penned by Dr Kabbinale Vasanth Bharadwaj and Choreographed by Natyacharya Mithun Shyam.
Kiran has participated in important Government programs like the Chiguru, Hampi Utsava, Karavali Utsava, Mysore Dussera and various editions of the Makkala Habba in Bangalore. She has performed twice in the very prestigious Bengaluru Ganesha Utsava in 2017 and 2018. She has also performed regularly at Alva’s Nudisiri in Moodabidri. She has been on Doordarshan Chandana, with four exclusive Konkani and Tulu performances, in 2016 and 2017. She has thereafter performed at various venues of various temples in and around Mangalore, Bangalore, Coorg district and also in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Kiran has been a student of Bharathanatyam for the last ten years and has been performing onstage since June 2012. Apart from Bharathanatyam, Kiran is training in Carnatic vocals, Yoga and the Keyboards.
