Kali – a powerful dancer, his lyrical and flexible upper body, drawing on both Odissi and western contemporary demonstrated an affinity with the varied qualities of the jazz clarinet, while his lower body strength aligned with the rhythmic pulse”, Pulse (autumn 2004)
“Lasya was powerful and different giving the audience a lot of drama and incident”, Head of Dance, Royal Festival Hall.
“As inventive with his title as he is with his choreography. ‘Trandisionale’ speaks of transcending traditions and nationality, this work was outstanding. Kali, in his ‘creative dance avatar’, was able to display the dignity of evolved forms in a striking setting. The grace of Bharata Natyam and Odissi blended effortlessly, via Shankaresque fusion, into more sexually charged styles of Flamenco, Tango and informal social dance”, Narthaki.com
