Honouring its origin in the Hindu Temples of coastal Orissa, “Mangalacharan” rightfully heralds the afternoon repertoire, as the dancers invoke the blessings of Lord Jagannath.

This is followed by Gairika’s solo performance- Megh Pallavi: elaborating on the romantic mood of the warm rainy season. Conceived and composed by Guru Ratikant Mohapatra.

The finale is brought up by Gairika and Sutapa‚Äôs duet on the rich and vibrant “Brahma” instrumental and vocal composition by the contemporary Carnatic Progressive Rock Band- Agam.
