Story Telling / Katha Keerthana Workshop

Harikathe/Katha Keerthana is a traditional art form of storytelling, popular in South India. It is an amalgamation of music, drama, story-telling and devotion. Sharvari Somayaji is a Harikathe exponent with over 10 years of experience and has performed at over 200 stages in India and abroad. She's currently pursuing her Masters at Goethe University Frankfurt and University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. Her gurus are her mother Veena Somayaji and Vid. Shilpa Shashidhar.


The mother and daughter duo are bringing together a creative workshop on Harikathe this April. The kids will get to understand the technicalities of the art form along with learning how to present a full fledged Harikathe in English. By the end of the workshop they will be able to perform a 20-25 minute Katha Keerthana on Seeta Kalyana.
