It is not often the Bay Area art lover gets to enjoy the performance of Kerala's classic dance form, the Mohini Attam. When such an instance presents itself, we need to support it with everything we have. We encourage all to spread the word about this amazing event in the South Bay this summer.   

Please come for the Mohini Attam Recital by Sunanda Nair showcasing recently researched and choreographed items along with Bhavayami by Maharaja Swathi Thirunal in the Mohini Attam style.
