Very Special Tabla and Dance Performance by
The Taalika Tabla Ensemble and Kathak Dancer Jin Won
Taalika: All-female percussion-ensemble
Acclaimed kathak dancer/teacher Jin Won is a native of Seoul, Korea, and for the past 15 years, a resident of India. She is a graceful performer whose dance recitals incorporate both traditional and contemporary forms of kathak. With her dual training in classical dance and tabla, her understanding of rhythm adds depth to her dance performance. Her chakars (spins) enthrall audiences and her padhant (oral recitation) leaves people in awe of the ease with which she recites such complex and foreign words.
