Javali – Vagaladi
In this modular course, you will learn Javali “Vagaladi Bodhanalaku” in Telugu language. Javalis are the compositions that are emotional in nature, mostly dealing with mundane love. The music and the mood in Javalis are lighter; the language is colloquial and has a lot of humor and satire. Tirupati Narayanaswami composed this Javali in Raga Behag set to Rupaka Tala. Here, the Nayika chides her beloved who has come back after breaking up with a ordinary prostitute. She questions, “ Oh Venkateswara! Are you swayed by the due advice of that clever deceptive woman who cheats many people even in the broad daylight? I was just praying that your relationship with that girl should turn bitter..”

Padam, Javali, Shloka, Bhajan, Ashtapadi and Devaranama are some of the main compositions that belong to the Abhinaya section in Bharathanatyam. There are thousands of compositions written by several composers encompassing varied human emotions that are universal in nature.Sign In / Sign Up
