Telecast live on NCPA YouTube Page
Bimbavati Devi, being the daughter of renowned classical Manipuri dancers & dance exponents, Guru Bipin Singh and Guru Kalavati Devi, was initiated into the world of dance and music at a very tender age. Besides dancing, she has also undergone training in pung (Manipuri mridang) playing and the basics of Thang Ta (Manipuri martial art). As a solo and performing artiste of Manipuri Nartanalaya, one of the pioneer institutions of Manipuri dance in India founded by her parents and the well-known Jhaveri sisters, she has performed in various prestigious dance programmes and festivals of India and abroad. A classical dancer par excellence, Bimbavati is now engaged in empirical choreographies based on Manipuri dance and experimenting with new idioms that expand the vocabulary of movements, following the path shown by her father.
