REVIEW FOR POOJA PHALAM - A DANCE BALLET BY ALLOORI VENKATAIAH AND GROUP
It's always more fun when it's the folks doing the dancing and singing, rather than primary school children in blotchy, overdone make-up. Somehow, the folks definitely look and sound more…well… folksy! And apart from being more homey, the dances by the folks from the boondocks are definitely more hip-swerving.
Alluri Venkataiah and troupe might not exactly be the Real McCoy but they sure dance and sound like them.Join these fifteen ladies and gentlemen from Cudappah as they perform a dance about thepuja to the Lord Krishna in Gokulam. I can hear the cowbells tinkling already and the red dust rising into the sunset from the cow-hooves. If you want to, as well, catch this performance at the Thyagaraja Gana Sabha today evening at 6pm.
