Sangeeta Majumder, who has already spread the aura of Indian classical dance through Strings N Steps and her foreign trips, recently travelled across four European nations, spreading the tradition of Kathak through workshops and performances.
The Europe tour started from Germany (Berlin & Kassel), to Hungary (Budapest & Budaors) then to Romania (Cluj) and finally Netherlands (Amsterdam & Amstelveen).
Sangeeta’s first performance was scheduled at Embassy of India, Berlin where she performed at the Tagore Cultural Centre, Berlin. She performed Traditional Kathak Recital followed by Strings N Steps- An Amalgamation of Indian Classical Music with Neel Ranjan Mukherjee and Kathak Dance and a piece on Beethoven’s composition followed by a poetry on Rabindranath Tagore. Yatziv Caspi was accompanied them on Tabla. The dancer skilfully enthralled the audience with her steps during this challenging performance.
The appreciation was spontaneous. Mrs. Manjistha Mukherjee Bhatt, Director of The Tagore Cultural Centre said,”It was a treat to the eyes and the duo Sangeeta and Neel complement each other”.
