Music, Theme and Costume: Kathak Costume in Mughal Times

Title:Music, Theme and Costume: Kathak Costume in Mughal Times
Author:Fabri, Charles
Enumeration:Vol. 12 Issue no. 4; September 1959, p. 58-61
Abstract:The tutu-shaped ballet skirt, seen in a miniature from the Akbarnama (c. 1605) and in a Rajasthani picture illustrating the Raja Megha (c. 1610) had a short life and was replaced by a completely transparent skirt and the churidar by the time of Jahangir. This dance costume is depicted in a leaf of the Rasikapriya dated here close to 1620, and is seen as late as 1750. The multiple skirt of the ballet dancer gave way to the churidar pyjama early in Jahangir's reign.
