- Issue 97
- Published By Sruti
The cover feature focusses on Two Stalwarts Of Indian Music, namely Ramanathapuram Sankarasiva Bhagavatar and Pandit Sharadchandra Arolkar, highly respected figures both (25-30). Additional articles on The North-South Musical Divide in Indian art music constitute the other special feature (31-36). The article on The Beijing Opera (37-39) completes the three-part series on the music of China which we started earlier this year
For dance enthusiasts, we offer- besides a report on a Mysore confest which includes the gist of valuable advice from veteran observers- two articles which should be treated as most valuable advisories. I refer to the articles captioned Dance a? The Media (41-42) and Why Dancers Fail In Abhinaya (42-43). I invite the attention of dance enthusiasts to two other articles: a comment on the challenge a dancer faces when she decides to present a performance based on the songs of a single composer (14), and the obituary article on Kamadev (23-24).
