Shobana dazzles Tuticorin with eclectic performance

With a vibrant dance performance, Shobana, a national-award winning actress and danseuse, kept the audience spellbound at Abirami Mahal here on Sunday.

A disciple of Chitra Visweswaran and Padma Subramaniam, she presented a blend of dance forms at `Dance Fusion,' a programme organised by Kerala Samajam, Tuticorin chapter.

The programme started with a performance titled `Anjali' with music composed by violin maestros Ganesh and Kumaresh. Ms Shobana and her troupe followed it with a few numbers describing Shiva.

The recital of traditional `Kailasavasa Varnam,' with the lyrics in Malayalam, was eclectic and the dancers performed it with consummate ease. A powerful inner rhythm guiding her, Shobana recited `Shyama', one of her offerings.

The one-and-a-half hour show ended with a dance played to the tune of `Vande Mataram,' composed by A. R. Rahman.

According to Kerala Samajam sources, a major portion of the earnings from the show will be utilised for social causes.
