An iconic Bharatanatyam Varnam

Bharatanatyam dancer Christopher Gurusamy shares a classic Varnam: Sakhiye - My dear Friend. The varnam Sakhiye, india vellayil is an iconic composition of the early 19th century by composer Chinnaya, a member of the Tanjore Quartet. The piece is "immortal", because it transcends time in its beauty and simplicity. In this dance piece the dancer portrays a young woman, who is in love with Lord Krishna of Mannargudi and asks her friend to bring him to her. She says: 

"My friend! See the beauty of the sky in sunset and blooming of flowers that surround us, the sweetness of the breeze.
This euphoric time is the right time for me to be united with my true love Krishna.
I have tried in many ways to send a message of love to him and been unsuccessful.
Without delay, please go to him in the great town of Mannargudi.
He who holds a white conch and discus in his beautiful hands that give compassion and yet have played so many games;
He who used to steal butter as a child and has stolen my heart in the same way. 
Ask him come to me, my king of the cowherd, my Krishna"
