Summary: The 2nd International Odissi Festival was organised by IPAP between August 28 - 31, 2003, in Washington D.C. Dedicated to the memory of Guru Pankaj Charan Das, who passed away in June 2003, it brought together Odissi dancers and scholars from all over the world.
Following a career as a dancer in Orissa, India, dancer, teacher and choreographer Jyoti Rout came to the United States in 1993 and founded Jyoti Kala Mandir. Many of her students have completed a Ranga Puja and are establishing careers as soloists. Jyoti Rout is still actively performing throughout the United States, India and internationally.
Here, she performs Megh Pallavi, which she has choreographed herself.
