How Usha Jey become a viral sensation by fusing Bharatanatyam and hip-hop

 Way back in May, Usha Jey 25 year old uploaded a dance reel to her instagram handle that went viral. 

She awoke to a million notifications from almost all over the world as artists from India, France and the US were sharing her reel; it found a mention even on American rapper and producer Swiss Beatz’ feed. 



Set to American rapper Lil Wayne’s ‘Uproar’, the video in question sees Jey and two other dancers attempt a routine that blends Bharatanatyam with hip-hop. Dressed in green check Kalakshetra sarees with jasmine flowers tucked in their hair, the trio effortlessly switch between Bharatanatyam steps while popping, locking and breaking.
