Review of 2 performances in Ontario:
On Saturday, October 3rd, 2009, Kathak dancer Won Joung Jin and Talavya (formerly Tabla Ecstasy) captivated audiences in Toronto during their concert hosted by the prestigious Raagmala Music Society of Toronto. The overall composition and the talent of its artists was appreciated by all during the Tabla Ecstasy performance, while Jin impressed all with her power and grace throughout her non-stop 1 hr solo recital.
On Sunday, October 4th, the diverse audience of Sarnia was in for a special treat. The community had come together to raise funds for a local shelter, while enjoying an evening of Indian music and dance. From the classical music listeners who understood the nuances within the performance, joining in giving laya by clapping to the novice listeners who full-heartedly gave their appreciation, all enjoyed the show, which went from strength to strength.
