Pradeepa Marisamy

In the realm of rhythmic movements and storytelling through dance, Pradeepa Marisamy emerges as a luminary, adorned with the grace of Kathak. Tonight, she brings to life the timeless tale of devotion through her performance of “Mohe Rang Do Laal,” a soul-stirring ode to the divine love between Radha and Lord Krishna. Pradeepa invites the audience to immerse themselves in the sacred dance of love and devotion. With each graceful turn and expressive gesture, she pays homage to the enduring legacy of Kathak, a timeless art form that celebrates the beauty of the human spirit and the eternal quest for divine union.”
