Nritya Vaibhava, a dance choreography presented by Dr. Vasundhara Doreswamy and team at the cultural programmes held at the Palace last evening proved that there still are many connoisseurs for classical art forms.

Vasundhara, began her performance by offering tribute to Goddess Chamundeshwari. The dance-drama narrated the story of Mahishasura Mardhini. Later, she presented Dashavatara (the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu) and concluded with a Thillana of Muthuswamy Dikshitar. Varicha on ghatam, Narayan on violin, V. Janardhan on mridanga, V. Krishnaprasad on flute and V.P. Rama Rao's vocals had the audience mesmerised.

District In-Charge Minister V. Sreenivasa Prasad and Lokayukta Bhaskar Rao presented mementos to Vasundhara Doreswamy and her student artistes.

This was followed by a violin duet by the Mysore Brothers Mysore Nagaraj and Dr. Manjunath. Earlier, Dollu Kunitha, a folk dance form, was presented by artistes of Beeralingeshwara Dollu Sangha of Bagewadi and by Omkarappa of Shimoga. A folk dance recital Songi Mukhavate by Maharashtra artistes was also widely appreciated by the crowd.
