Dance and Music        



Nadanam


Dance and Music go hand in hand and are complimentary to each other. They are like two limbs of a human body. The fundamental principle of Arts is clearly stated in Vishnudharmottara Purana, when Markendeya told King Vajra that he must learn the art of dance before he learnt the art of icon-making and the art of music before he learnt dance and that he must master taala before he attempted to learn music. Thus the concept of taala has been fundamental to all Indian Arts and the interrelationships between all the arts can be seen is not only in terms of aesthetic experience (to evoke Rasa) but also technique. The relationship between dance and music can be felt from the content (lyrics-prose and poetry ) and as well as the technique.
