Pancha Jati

CDDC Repetoire - Pancha Jati
Think you've seen Indian dance?  Think again. Pandit Chitresh Das continues to challenge the perception of India's classical dance tradition with his new work, Pancha Jati.  His choreography and music composition for his all-female, kathak dance company draws from India's ancient rhythmic energy, juxtaposing the raw power of percussive footwork and drums with movement that is both austere and lush.

Accompanying the CDDC dancers are world-class musicians: vocalist Debashis Sarkar, sitarist Jayanta Banerjee, tabla player Biplab Bhattacharya, and taval player Jim Santi Owen.
