These four volumes will be played by me many times in the future. I do not speak Tamil but have needed the internet to fuuly appreciate hand gestures and the order of pieces in a complete performance. I wish her students the best for the future.
The only drawback was that three of the four volumes were shorter than advertised so that these four volumes could have been put onto two.
Srekala performs solo a skilled dance with music in Sankarabharanam. She has all the 10 required skills of an accomplished Bharatanatyam artist. She is agile, strong and yet delicate, her steps are fast and swift as needed, and most of all, the emotions she expresses really reveal the story told in the song. The choreography is well-thought out and put together.
Srekala is unique.
