"Acclaimed Indian artist Raghunath Manet is equally skilled in both dance and music. Born in the former colony of Pondicherry, Manet studied dance with Pondicherry M.S Nathan, Kalakshetra and Ram Gopal, vocal music with Gnanamani Pillai and veena under Gurus Chidambaran Kaumati Sankara Iyer, Rajeshwari Padmanaban and Ranganayaki Rajagopalan. His technique and the purity of style have made him one of the finest exponents of Bharata natyam, India's most ancient dance form. An excellent musician, he knows how to create a perfect fusion between music and dance, which is the secret of his great classical artistry. Manet has released more than 20 CDs, 4 DVDs and has written 3 books. He was the first Indian choreographer to perform in Opera de Paris in France and at the Grimaldi Theatre in Monaco for the Royal family, on the occasion of the first 'Nijinsky' dance awards -- a historic event in the world of dance."
