Yakshagana | Haribhakta Sudhanva

Haribhakta Sudhanva:

During the performance of the “ಹರಿಭಕ್ತ ಸುದನ್ವ” (Haribhakta Sudhanva) in our residential layout.

A small episode from the Bhagavadgitha/Mahabharata.

“Sudhanva, who is a great devotee of Krishna, fulfills his desire to see Krishna in person by defeating Arjuna.

Krishna gives into Sudhanva’s wish, appears before him and helps Arjuna kill Sudhanva thereby granting him salvation.”

Yakshagaana, the traditional dance form of Karnataka is one of the most popular too in the state. Often used to portray and narrate stories from the old texts. It involves very dramatic enactments, with the artists using bright colored paints, attire. Usually performed in the night under lights, it can go on all night.

Fantastic to watch the energy in the performances. Watch this space for a small film on the same.
