Pratibha Arts presents ‘Sadhana/Tarana,’ featuring artists in Kathak dance and North Indian classical vocal music from across North America. ‘Sadhana’ means intense dedication. In the tradition of South Asian classical arts, students undergo years of intense practice and training in order to achieve mastery of forms such as Kathak dance. This event presents emerging and established South Asian artists in Canada who demonstrate this dedication. ‘Tarana’ is a song for dance, and the event highlights the strong interaction between dance and music in South Asian culture.

Featured artists of Sadhana/Tarana include Ottawa vocalist Vinay Bhide, Tabla virtuoso Vineet Vyas, Kathak dance artist Bageshree Vaze, Sarangi artist Pankaj Mishra, and emerging artists Utkarsha Kale, Anindita Anaam, Tarika Nath, Shivani Badgi and Ariaki Dandawate.

Sadhana/Tarana is grateful for the generous sponsorship from The Sheila Kirpalani Foundation. The Sheila Kirpalani Founda­tion strives to make high-impact grants and reward excellence in three areas that characterized the important aspects of Sheila’s life: health promotion, education, and music. This is being done through a named high school scholarship in Biology, donations to promote awareness of and research in pancreatic cancer, and grants to promote development training and performance in South Asian music.

Pratibha Arts is committed to increasing the visibility of what is considered culturally-diverse styles in the Canadian arts ecology. Pratibha Arts is honoured to present this production in the home of Native Earth Performing Arts — in a moment of Truth and Reconciliation, we stand in solidarity with First Nations peoples and cultures who have taken care of this land and offered us this space on which to live and perform.
