Brahmam Okate, a Kurathi Folk Dance presentation to the popular Annamacharya Krithi in Ragam Bowli, Adi Talam sung by Unni Krishnan for the Album Kadambam. The dance of the Kurathis or mountain gypsies, a traditional folk-dance from Southern India, is popular among classical dancers. Choreographed by Arshia Rajeshnarayanan and performed along with Swathi Jaisankar, both the dancers infuse energetic folk movements of Kurathi dance into basic movement patterns of Bharatanatyam. The dance depicts the presence of Lord Vishnu within every being and conveys the overarching message of equality among all living beings.
