Jatiswaram: Raga Rasikapriya
Playlist 24 • 9m 23s
The second piece that is traditionally presented in a Margam is a Jatiswaram. A Jatiswaram is named as such because it is a combination of a Jathis and Swarams. It begins with a Jathi typically followed by the Pallavi, Anupallai and Charanams, to which multiple Korwes are choreographed.
This particular Jatiswaram was first choreographed by Guru Narmada and subsequently re-choreographed by Guru Rukmini retaining the essence of the earlier choreography of Guru Narmada. This is typically the first Jatiswaram that is taught to any student learning in the Raadha Kalpa Dance school.
Instructions will be given in the weeks following.
