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.
Shibani Patnaik has been extensively trained in Odissi. Her instruction has entailed frequent visits to India to study under Gurus Padmashree Gangadhar Pradhan, Aruna Mohanty, Manoranjan Pradhan and Yudhistir Nayak from the Orissa Dance Academy in India. Patnaik is a popular performer in the USA and India. She performed at the Mukteshwar Festival earlier this year. In 2006, she was the recipient of the Devadasi award.
Here, she performs Madhurashtakam.
