This Sanskrit word is by definition, “tradition.”
In practice, it represents transference while infusing innovation.
Tradition sustains beauty and provides foundation and framework.
From tradition we imbibe, create, iterate and share.
Sampradaya lights the next lamp.
Kala Vandanam presents a
20th 21st anniversary ensemble Bharatanatyam concert with live music, celebrating signature choreographic works of the great masters who lit our lamps.
We are honored to make our Cowles Center debut with this concert.
We are also pleased to join other Twin Cities arts organizations with PAY AS YOU ARE ticket pricing. PAY AS YOU ARE asks those who routinely pay the fair market value for tickets to choose to pay that amount. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less, while those able to pay above market price are welcome to do so.
