The death of dance master and educator Pandit Chitresh Das in 2015 marked the loss of a mammoth figure in the world of kathak.Through his school and acclaimed dance company, Das, 70 at the time of his death, was a major force in spreading the North Indian dance form throughout the Bay Area and country.Charlotte Moraga, the former principal dancer in Das’ company, will be accompanied by Das’ lifelong friend and tabla master Swapan Chaudhuri in a kathak solo performance.

- Ethnic Dance revelations mark festival opening
By Allan Ulrich - Sunday Jul 9, 2017
Even in its 39th year, the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival is still uncovering examples of the Bay Area’s inexhaustible cultural bounty and displaying them with uncommon flair.[...] the company’s festival debut was “Awa Odori,” a traditional Japanese ensemble celebrating ancestors, was wonderful in configuration and musicality.The most remarkable aspect of the performance was the live music accompanying all eight companies, a first in my years of festival attendance.The Opera House’s superior acoustics exerted an almost alchemical effect on the dancing, and it did not hurt to engage outstanding musicians like Zakir Hussain and John Santos.The Pilipino Folk Ensemble, LIKHA, revived its evergreen “Birds in Flight,” and the troupe never looked better.Festival debutant Ramón Ramos Alayo re-created a Cuban street party, with flouncing skirts and unpredictable leaps.The finale, an Afro-Cuban coronation celebration, immersed the stage in bodies swaying to an intoxicating score.At intermission, World Arts West, which produces the festival, bestowed the Malonga Casquelourd Lifetime Achievement Award on Naomi Diouf, artistic director of Diamano Coura West African Dance Company.
