Devotion: Sangeeta Kar and "Meera Nachire"

Meera Nachire by Sangeeta Kar on Grooveshark

Indian classical music is the destination of our random tune today. Meera Nachire is by Michigan-based and award winning Indian singer and dancer Sangeeta Kar, the founder and artistic director of the Sangeetayan Institute of Dance and Music of India. She has degrees in classical Odissi (the oldest dance form in India), Hindustani classical vocal music and English literature. She was trained in Odissi dance by Padma Vibhushan Kelucharan Mahapatra and in music by Deepak Basu. Meera Nachire is a Hindu bhajan and can be found on her 1998 album of the same name.
