Tag Archives: the importance of music for dance

Some random thoughts on what music means to me while dancing


The chime of bells, I feel in my smile,

The dham of the mridangam is my heartbeat,

The staccato of the natuvangam, my calling into bliss,


The flute breathes stillness into my mind,

The violin flows into me, bringing lasya to my limbs,

The ragam creates emotion resonating through to my fingertips,


All sounds work as one… gathering my wandering self and focusing my energies onto one all-encompassing point…
