The last that you'd have seen something of this sort would have been in Sankarabharanam.
An exceptionally talented dancer performing to the rendering of an extremely revered
singer, that is. Only, just like in Sankarabharanam, they are not going
to do it on one stage here, either. But the popularity of both the individuals
is such that that is hardly likely to impact the popularity of such an event.
On the occasion of Ghantasala Venkateswara Rao's death anniversary, Raagasaptaswaram
is organizing a dance program by Sobha
Naidu, who will perform to classical songs of the legendary singer. There
will be 7 songs, and the event is having several special guests, including contemporaries
of Ghantasala like Akkineni Nageswara Rao, K V Bhaskar Rao and Acharya N Gopi.
There are also invitees like Vinjamuri Sujata (Joint Secretary of the North American
Telugu Association). There will be a talk about Ghantasala by the special guests,
along with the dance.
