Rajendra and Nirupama perform classical Indian dance

Nirupama and Rajendra.jpgAn ancient form of Indian dance called kathak will be performed tonight at the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall in Montreal.

Bollywood dance is all about the flash and sparkle. But the focus of kathak dance is storytelling through movement.

The husband and wife duo of Rajendra and Nirupama have performed kathak all over the world.  This is the only Canadian show on their tour. They joined Sonali Karnick in studio to talk about the tradition and how they're bringing it into the 21st century.
