I don't like Geeta's choice of songs for traditional or classical dance forms. Jalwa song for Chhau dance wasn't just working for me. She did the same thing when Siddesh did kathak. I don't know why Geeta feels so insecure to do classical numbers on classical songs. It will surely enhance the performance and public will appreciate it. We should be proud of our traditional art forms and present them without any hesitations and Geeta should really step up as that is her forte. Oh well
I agree with her song selections.. Though Sid's Kathak dance was okay, since it requires all the fast beats to match the footwork.. In fact her songs for DID1 were much better IMO.. In DID2 though, she made many mistakes - using the fast beat silly song for Manipuri was the worst of all... Jalwa song for Chaau wasnt good either... But she was doing better with songs this season when compared to DID2 season... I dont mind Hindi songs being used for classical and folk dance forms, as long as the composition and/or lyrics do justice to the dance form..
