Kannada Sahitya Parishat felicitated artists and dancers from Bidar, who performed in the recent Navika third world Kannada summit in Raleigh, USA, in Bidar on Sunday.
Folk artiste and team leader Shambhuling Waldoddi, Kanteppa Pujar, danseuse Usha Prabhakar, director of the Nupur Bharata Natya academy, and her students Poornachandra, Jyotika and Priya were felicitated.
They have just come back from the U.S. after presenting cultural programmes before a crowd of 3,000, Revanasiddappa Jalade, convenor, Vikas Academy, said.
Mr. Waldoddi lauded the ordinary American workers’ virtues of hard work and punctuality. They seem to be following Basaveshwara’s ideas of Kayaka and Dasoha, he said.
Ms Prabhakar spoke about the types of dances her team performed and the reception she got. Sidramappa Masimade, KSP district unit president,
K. Gurumurthy, Nagashetty Dharampur, Umakanth Meese and other office bearers were present.
