Continuing with the tradition of presenting the finest in Indian music and dance to arts aficionados, HCL Infosystems organized ‘Expressions of the Mind 2009’, a special programme of HCL Concert Series at the India Habitat Centre today. HCL Concert Series is a pioneering initiative by HCL Infosystems Limited, India’s premier information enabler and country’s leading ICT system integrator and distribution company, to showcase excellence in Indian art and culture to discerning public and has presented hundreds of concerts featuring a variety of artistes over ten years of its existence.
The premier Indian classical music event on Wednesday based on the theme of ‘Basant Chhavi’ featured soul-stirring music recital by Ms Kalapini Komkali, the daughter and disciple of Pandit Kumar Gandharva and Vidushi Smt. Vasundhara Komkali has performed widely across the country in many prestigious music festivals. Her moving performance kept the audience spellbound.
This was followed by a dazzling solo dance performance by Ms. Kavita Dwibedi, one of the leading exponents of Odissi dance in India, today. Daughter and disciple of Odissi maestro Guru Harekrishna Behera, Kavita is known for her vision, versatility and superb Abhinaya. A widely traveled danseuse, Kavita Dwibedi had several highly successful ICCR sponsored tours
