Annamacharya Mission organised a cultural evening of dance and music on the occasion of his 608th birth anniversary. His renditions in the praise of Lord Venkateswara Swamy were showcased through word, song and dance on Saturday at Shiridi Saibaba Samsthan, Bagh Amberpet.

Dr Anupama Kylash and group showcased their dance skills to nine beautiful Keertanas of Annamayya which were rendered by late Bharata Ratna, M S Subbalakshmi.

The 4 member group enthralled the audience with their performance for ‘Srimannarayana srimannarayana’, ‘Bhavamulona bhagyamunandhunu’, ‘Deva devam bhaje divya prabhavam’ and ‘Nanaati badhuku naatakamu’. Kamisetty Srinivasulu, founder of Annamacharya mission explained the meaning of the verses to the audience during the event.

"This concept is new. It is always difficult to perform the Keertanas in the form of dance, The group did a great job in showcasing various expressions. We are looking forward to organise these type of events in future as well," said Srinivasulu.

The four member group includes, Anupama Kylash, Pujitha Krishnajyoti, Girija Kishore, and Yemi Kumar. "We have taken up 9 famous songs of Annamacharya and we performed it in Kuchipudi and Vilasini dance style. We edited the tracks to suit the dance form,” shared Anupama.
