Stellar Indian classical dancer Jayshree Bala Rajamani, collaborates with Jazz ensemble Natraj for the visual-aural East-meets-West fusion, Putra Poutra Bhavathu: To be Blessed with Child. This show celebrates and supports the blessing of adoption. The core piece depicts the endearing traditional Indian story of Yashoda with her adopted child, Lord Krishna.
 
  Jayshree Bala Rajamani was initiated into the glorious ancient art of classical Indian dance by her mother. She creates perfect fusion between body movement and music in her choreographies and has been lauded for her grace and lightning footwork. Her awards include the title, “Natyamani,” Jewel of Dance, conferred by the Indian Cultural Society, New Delhi, and the Sahitya Kala Parishad award for excellence in dance. “Breathtaking footwork.” – Indian Express, New Delhi. “Impressive… with a flair for Abhinaya [expression]… sensitively visualized.” – The Hindu.

 Natraj... contemplative raga improvisation, high-energy African- and Indian-based grooves, complex odd meters and polyrhythms, and edgy contemporary jazz... blended together beautifully while showcasing the brilliance of each artist,” raves Lokvani.com. Natraj has delighted listeners in concert halls and festivals throughout the US, Canada, India, and Africa since 1987. Recent appearances include the Berklee Percussion Festival, where Natraj performed with Indian percussion wizard Trichy Sankaran. “True fusion of jazz and world musics... Compelling blend of Indian, African, and Jazz musics... Excellent… It all works quite beautifully,” attests Cadence.
Natraj features saxophonist Phil Scarff, violist Mat Maneri, bassist Mike Rivard, tabla and multipercussion master Jerry Leake, and drummer Bertram Lehmann.
