Superb review of Ekalya at Endinburgh Mela!

From the opening, Sabri seizes our attention with the sharp focus of her movement and her eyes. We see Shiva beating his drum with vigorous finger and wrist action and as the dance progresses the God alternates between fury and steely resolve. With dynamic motion, Sabri weaves gorgeous shapes, her hands mesmerising with their eloquence and suppleness....... Stuart Sweeny for Critical Dance

Ekalya celebrates Indian & Persian Artistry through a beautifully intimate crafting of dance and live music. Sonia Sabri, a leading light in the world of Indian Kathak dance, breathes new life into a classical art form.

Kathak is an exhilarating dance experience: an astounding display of precise footwork, eloquent gesture, rapid turns and intricate, heart-pounding rhythms.  Internationally acclaimed for her electric stage presence and distinctive personal style, Sonia revisits the roots of Kathak in a high-impact performance that embraces a rich, joyful spirit and builds to a heart-pounding rhythmic crescendo.

This stunning production features evocative live music from an ensemble of musicians including sitar, vocal, harmonium and tabla from the world-renowned maestro Sarvar Sabri.

A vibrant and uplifting performance from two of the most renowned performers in the UK, which will delight and wow audiences of all ages. Driven by live music, the dialogue between dancer and musician is dramatic, innovative and soul-stirring.
