Wadaiko Ensemble TOKARA in New York PDF Print E-mail

ImageA new work by Wadaiko Ensemble TOKARA and
Ragamala Dance and Theater, this collaboration between two culturally-based art forms— Japanese Taiko and Bharatanatyam brings the driving percussion and sweeping physicality of the Tokara drummers into conversation with the complex rhythms and athletic precision of Ragamala’s work.

Sva explores the kinships between the two art forms and the Hindu and Shinto spiritual traditions from which they emerge.  The graceful melodies of Tokara Artistic Director Art Lee on the shinobue flute, woven together with Carnatic (South Indian classical) flute by V. K. Raman, augment the powerful rhythms of the Taiko.

Sva will premiere in May, 2007, at the New Victory Theater, New York City.
