Due to her immense contribution to the form over the last few decades she is considered one of most eminent and influential personalities in the world of Indian Classical Dance.
The workshop culminated in a long awaited dance performance alongside her niece, the talented Mahati Kannan on November 22. She was accompanied on vocals and nattuvangam by Gayatri Kannan and Radhika Muthukrishnan, on Vina by Kannan Balakrishnan, Kanjira by Shyamakrishnan, Mridangam by M. Balachandar and Violin by Balu Raguraman.
At the Bhavan's annual gala fundraising event, the prestigious Diwali Banquet at The Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square, the chief guests were, The Speaker of The House of Commons, The Rt. Hon. John Bercow MP and His Excellency the High Commissioner of India, Shri Ranjan Mathai.
