Bimbavati Devi in Manipuri


2006 NR

Enjoy a beautiful performance of one of the world's most ancient art forms. Manipuri combines elements of nritta (dance) and abhinaya (acting) to tell the fabled story of Lord Krishna and his consort, Radha. With roots in the Northeastern Indian state of Manipur, Manipuri focuses on the themes of blossoming love and eternal devotion. Bimbavati Devi performs this lyrical dance, which includes gorgeous costumes and graceful movements.
