Manoranjan Nayak

Abstract :

Odissi music is the finest reconciliation of harmony with melody, which suffers no diminution of the essential quality of the classical music. The individual character of Odissi Music makes every recital an interpretation and self–expression. The unique identity of Odissi classical music lies in its presentation with equal importance to the Odissi dance and its classical ornamentation. Both Odissi music and Odissi dance have retained its distinctive identity in spite of the diversity in language, religion, and culture that was ought to Odisha’s geographical localization by idging the southern and northern section of India. It is ironic that Odissi music which is the soul of Gotipua dance still continue to endure the debate for its classical status whereas Odissi dance form has already attained the classical status along with its contemporary classical dance forms of India.
