Dear Sangrok family:
Currently at Sangrok gym, we have 2 teams from India. Many of the students are not only knowledgeable in Taekwondo but also have knowledge in traditional Indian Arts. We were delighted to have these students perform their skills for us.
Ketki (10years old) performed the 'Bharatanatyam dance' (a traditional Indian dance based on a traditional Indian story about the gods) whilst Kavin played the 'tabla' (a traditional Indian drum).
Kavin (13 years old) has visited Korea before, this time bringing his 'tabla' with him to teach Koreans and other students a little bit about Indian culture. The two performed together then Kavin played the 'tabla' solo and amazed us all with his skill.
Bharatanatyam is considered to be a dance of fire. The movements are meant to resemble the movement of a dancing flame, an element found in the human body. 'Bharata' refers to the author of Natayashastra, and 'natya' is Sanscript ( common Indian language) for the art of sacred dance/drama. The dancer uses classic postures and expressive hand gestures to tell a story and to learn the whole dance takes years to master. Lord Shiva or Nataraja is known as the King of Dance and the dance itself is believed to celebrate the eternal universe through the celebration of beauty of the material body.
Indians have many different drums used for different reasons. The 'tabla' an instrument used in classical, popular and religious music. It has an interesting history and requires a great amount of skill to play it. It is composed of two drums, a smaller and more denser drum (dayan) and a second drum (bayan) larger in size. The dayan can produce approximately 12 different sounds and the bayan can produce 2 sounds which have a more traditional sound, these fused together create the unique sound of the 'tabla'.
If you want to know more about the 'tabla' you can email Kavin and ask him questions at his email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
