Jham! An innovative classical Indian dance and music production conceptualised and created by award-winning choreographer Nina
Rajarani MBE, and much sought-after music composer Y Yadavan.
Jham! is an upbeat, playful and energetic collaboration between dancers and musicians that highlights the rhythmic play between the ancient and the modern. Jham! has a distinctly interactive feel, with musicians and dancers working off one another to produce creative ‘jamming’ that is fun and engaging with contrasting aspects of classical v/s modern.
Jham! features prominent musicians including a Karnatik vocalist, a beatboxer, a classical Indian percussionist, a flautist and a saxophonist alongside classical Indian dancers trained in Kathak and Bharatanatyam dance.
“Rajarani’s take on classical Indian dance is invigorating.”
