Kannadiga music class is now open to the public in Berkeley.
Classes are offered by the Kannadas Kannabadi Music Association.
The group has been running classes for nearly four years, and students are invited to come to the class on Tuesdays.
The group has a small office in the Berkeley library.
“We’ve been running a regular class since April, and we’re open to anybody,” said Gyanendra Kumar, the associate director of the KANDAIAA.
The KANNADAA has been run by former students of the famous Kanabadi dance studio and the Kanna Dance Company, which was run by the founder of Kannadi Dance School, Prabhjot Bajaj.
Bajaj was born in the city of Kanna and studied at the KANNDAIA a school for dance in the 19th century.
He was also an avid Kannadan and a member of the Kanabads band.
After his death, the school closed down in 1921.
The school is now a KANNADIAA building.
Students have been invited to register, but they have to sign an affidavit stating they have no affiliation with the Kanadai Dance School.
The affidavit has to be signed by at least one person.
The class is open to all ages, but students have to have at least a high school education to attend.
The class is also open to anyone who is interested in the Kanaadai dance.
Kannada Dance Society director Suman Kumar said the aim is to spread Kannadhana music to other parts of the country.
