Kala Vandanam is honored to present an excerpt of Ritu – The Seasons at the 2017 Midwest Melharmony Festival presented by the Melharmony Foundation in Madison, WI


I bow to the wheel of six seasons
Cycles of birth and death
Each season bestows gifts
Enchanting our hearts
Bringing abundance to our earth

Inspired by Kalidasa’s 4th century Sanskrit work Ritu Samhara and Vivaldi’s 18th century Italian work Le Quattro Stagioni, Kala Vandanam’s Ritu – The Seasons brings out the beauty of each season through an original Bharatanatyam work.
