Music in the Galleries: Indian Dance
Free and open to the public.
This season, Music in the Galleries features musical and dance performances by South Asian performing arts groups from UNC-Chapel Hill. This Sunday features the dancing of three UNC student troupes: UNC Ek Taal, a dance troupe that mixes classical Indian dance with modern dance; Bhangra Elite, who specialize in the popular bhangra-style of traditional Indian dancing; and the Tar Heel Raas, who perform traditional forms of Indian dance from the western part of India. As a part of each performance, members of the ensembles will demonstrate key features of their art forms—and invite audience members to try them out! John Caldwell (Asian Studies, UNC-CH), whose research focuses on Indian music and popular culture, hosts this special Music in the Galleries.
