Music: “Precious Regrets” by Lewis Morris https://lewism.bandcamp.com/
Inspired by the title of the music used, this piece embodies my identities as a first gen immigrant in the US. Away from my homeland, I find comfort in music genres such as RnB, Soul, HipHop, Rap, Brass Band and Latin. They share the rhythm with music native to India. The dance used in this piece is called Bharatnatyam. It is one of the multiple beautiful dance forms from South India and also one I had the privilege of taking lessons in as a child.
Both cultures have formed my identity, which is at times separate and sometimes whole. This piece embodies those identities at their core. One does not exist without the other. They exist as Parallels, equals.
