      Biography
      Fasih ur Rehman began his Kathak training in 1977 under the tutelage of Maharaj Ghulam Hussain - a disciple of Achan Maharaj of Lucknow Gharana. He also trained under the guidance of Shramiti Kumudini Lakhia. Fasih is one of the leading Pakistani Kathak dancers; in 2006 he was awarded one of the highest civilian medals, the TAMGHAI-I-IMTIAZ by the President of Pakistan for his 30 year contribution to the Kathak artform.

      Fasih ur Rehman is a dancer who has strived throughout his career to promote dance and staunchly protect classical Kathak both worldwide and within his home country; all the while facing strong opposition from conservative forces.

      Kathak
      Kathak is historically routed in the North of India. Technically controlled and precise, Kathak is generally performed in an upright position, involving fast rhythmic footwork combined with flowing arm movements and fast spins.
      "On stage, though, he shifts seamlessly between tandava and lasya, the masculine and feminine energies needed to portray a Kathak love song, tugging at his imaginary paramour's plait one moment, gracefully sliding on bangles the next."
