The piece [Chaturang] is an Abhinaya Piece. The word means ‘the art of expression’, etymologically it derives from Sanskrit abhi - ‘towards’ & nii - ‘leading/guide’, so literally it means a ‘leading towards’ (leading the audience towards a sentiment). It is used as an integral part of all the Indian classical dance styles, which all feature some kind of mimetic aspect to certain compositions, for example in depictions of daily life or devotional pieces.
