About me: Brahmadaru – the main author of this site.
I started learning Bharatanatyam (traditional south indian dance) in 1998 in Tokyo, and converted to Odissi in 2009. Since then, I keep visiting Bhubaneswar to learn from several Odissi dance exponents such as:

Guru Bichitrananda Swain
Guru Ligaraj Swain
Guru Judistir Nayak
Guru Lingaraj Pradhan

I also learned Pakhaj, traditional Oriya percussion from Guru Bijaya Kumar Barik and Guru Banamali Maharana.
One of my dreams is to spread this wonderful traditional art to all over the world and enrich people’s lives through it.
