Hailing from the village of Kuchelapuri or Kuchelapuram in the Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh,
the Kuchipudi dance has a history of nearly two millennia. Since its origin, it has remained a
continuous and living dance tradition of Andhra Pradesh. Its genesis, like most Indian classical
dances is associated with religions, and for a long time was presented only at temples, and that
too only for annual festivals of certain temples in Andhra.

The Cadences of Kuchupudi - Mathurya Murali  (An Exposition of Tarangams)
Format: VCD
Cat# SV120
Artist: Uma Muralikrishna

Kuchupudi is an ancient dance form of India that has its roots in the southern province of Andhra Pradesh that
involves fast, rhythmic footwork and sculpture-like body postures. Essentially a dance-drama, it unfolds scenes
from Hindu epics and mythology by combining music, dance and acting.

This product unveils the nuances of ‘Tarangam’ an important component of Kuchupudi through a pulsating
recital by ‘Kalaimamani’ Uma Muralikrishna, a highly acclaimed artiste. The highlight of ‘Tarangam’ is that the
dancer dances on the edge of a brass plate marked by nimble but complicated rhythmic patterns.
