In this extraordinary batik work, we see music and dance in rhythm with each other. Dancers dancing to the taal of tabla are in symmetrical posture. Geometric shapes play a major role in this work. The background is divided into triangles of different colours. The upper two triangles are of plain red and white colours while the one in the foreground is chequered in burgundy and saffron. The figures are quasi-abstract. The tabla player is dressed in a dotted dhoti with an angavastram around his neck. The movement of his hands and head reveal the fervour he is playing the drums with. The artist has used the technique of perspective in the case of the dancers with the size of the dancers reducing as they go. The upper garment of all dancers may be the same but the skirts are worked in different shapes and differently placed triangles in white, yellow and black.
Not only is there harmony amongst the figures, the various colours are juxtaposed in a very complimentary manner.
