Natya Dwani Adavus & Korvais
Audio CD
Item# BNSA019
This audio CD presents 'Adavus' and 'Korvais'- the two integral aspects of Bharathanatyam, India's
traditional dance form.

What words are to a language, Adavu is to dance. It makes communication meaningful and free
flowing by fusing different aspects of dance to create a seamless continuity and fluidity. Rigorous
training in the adavus sets the foundation for exploring the many nuances of Bharathanatyam.

It contains a track-wise recording of some of the often-used adavus, with one or more practice
variations in each. A booklet naming each adavu and describing its delineation is also included.

There is a value addition to this product in the form of a recording of twenty Korvais (sequences of
adavus) composed in different permutations and combinations of rhythm. This will prove useful to
dancers and teachers in choreographing sequences of movement.
