Three docu-films show the art and lives of 3 different artistes

Three documentaries screened today at Arkay Centre in Luz were on some of the greatest artistes we have seen.
Brinda, A K C Natarajan and Adyar K Lakshman.
And each artiste's character and musical journey were unique.

The Brindamma film focussed on her music, her character and her life. A lady who could not take substandard music.

The AKC film told us about an artiste's life in the 50s and 60s, the toil and sweat, the long, long concerts and the paltry pay and yet, the pride, talent and standards that existed.

The film on dance acharya Adyar K Lakshman is a work in progress and gave us a glimpse of the artiste's early education and of traditional methods of dance learning. Baba Prasad, Lakshman's son is working on this film.
