AKIPRESS.COM - With a spectacular ‘Mahabrinda Natyam’ show, a dizzying array of 6,117 performers created a new Guinness World Record here on Sunday, for the largest Kuchipudi dance, reports The Hindu.

The record-creating entry is “Jayamu Jayamu,” presented in unison, and the certificate for the feat was handed over to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu by Guinness adjudicator Rishinath.

The dancers were from various age groups: as young as 5 to more than 60 years old. The record event was preceded by two days of Kuchipudi conferences,

Dancers from across the country were joined by those from U.S., Dubai, U.K., Russia, Hong Kong and Mauritius.

Dancers of Chinese origin who had learnt the form came from Hong Kong. Sunday’s performance lasted 13 minutes. The Guinness requirement is a minimum of 5 minutes to attempt an entry into the records.

A similar performance was held a couple of years ago in combined Andhra Pradesh, in Hyderabad, with a smaller complement of dancers. After bifurcation, the A.P. government has been focusing on promoting Kuchipudi, which takes its name from a village in Krishna district, 50 km from here.
