CHENNAI: Veteran bharathanatyam dancer Nandini Ramani and her daughter Sushama Ranganathan will perform together for the Parampara series organised by Brahma Gana Sabha on Tuesday. The mother-daughter duo will present items in the traditional margam format at the programme, as part of the line-up of concerts that will showcase performances by mother-daughter and father-daughter artiste duos.

Talking to CE, Nandini, a disciple of the legendary Balasaraswathi, says, “My daughter and I have been performing together on and off in programmes in the country and abroad. As part of Parampara, we will yet again come together for the show that is centered on dancer duos who are mother-daughter or father-daughter. Since I am a soloist in the margam format, this time too, the programme will be entirely margam based.”

Sushama, who has been trained by her mother, also trained under K Ganesan, who worked extensively with Balasaraswathi. Ganesan belonged to the illustrious Kandappa lineage and taught Nandini the techniques of the art form, while she learnt from Bala till a few years before the latter’s death.

The programme will be held at 7.30 pm on Tuesday by the Brahma Gana Sabha at Sivagami Pethachi Auditorium, Luz Church Road, Mylapore.
