Rating is quick and easy - try it!

You've heard the strains of the song “Bhama Ne Satya Bhama Ne”, portraying a Satyabhama preening herself in sheer self indulgence, singing her own praises and missing Krishna. It is part of the play Bhamakalapam, which along with Tarangam, is one of the most popular compositions of Sidhdhendra Yogi. But when he originally wrote it, he kept women away from training in kuchipudi since he felt they would lower the spiritual tone by exaggerating the physical gestures.

Today evening, witness Kuchipudi, the way it was meant to be, during the Bhakti Movement - with young brahmin boys playing the role of women. P. Ramalinga Shastry and his all male troupe will perform Bhamakalapam, the play about Satyabhama and Rukmini in their many moods.

Ramalinga Shastry comes from an unbroken ancestral lineage, consisting entirely of practicing Kuchipudi brahmins. He has been practicing Kuchipudi all his life.
