Pandit Chitresh Das and Jason Samuel are set to perform a foot-tapping jugalbandhi titled Fastest Feet in Rhythm at Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore on Sunday.

Pandit Das is a Kathak maestro who has been collaborating with artistes proficient in other dance forms to delineate the language of  dance. He is currently working with Jason Samuel, an Emmy-awarded tap dancer from New York. Their meeting on stage promises to be not just a meeting of cultures, but a fusion of art forms.

They are performing as part of the Institute’s annual cultural festival Unmaad and the show is going to be “high entertainment, crossing all boundaries of age, race and culture — a blast of incredible speed and power, grace and beauty, epic storytelling and the pure joy of dance,” states the release. The performance will also feature musicians N Ramakrishnan on Mridangam,  Kalinath Mishra on Tabla, Jayanta Banerjee on Sitar, Debashish Sarkar on Vocals, and Mainak Nag Chowdhary, Nishad Pandey, and Jivraj Singh on Jazz Vocals. There is no entry fee.
