Festivals of Kerala Onam
  • 10. Performances Of Kerala Dance is an integral part of Kerala’s art and culture and no festival is complete. These dance forms have gained popularity not only in the state itself, but also across the globe! Each dance form is unique and has a different way of expression adorned with ornaments and dance costumes. • There are 10 Dances: Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Thirvathirakali, Kolkali Ottamthullal, Koodiyattam, Chakyar Koothu, Oppana, Margamkali and Theyyam. • Kathakali is the most famous dance of Kerala.

Kanyar Kali, Padayani, Mudiyettu, Thirayattam, Malavayiyattam, Theyyam, Kothamooriyattam, Nira, Puthari, etc. are some of the ritual folklore of Kerala. It was under the rule of Kolathiris, the Kings of Kolathunadu, and they codified the rituals, beliefs, taboos and folk performing arts. Ritualistic folk arts can be further divided into two: devotional and magical. Devotional folk arts are performed to propitiate a particular God or Goddess. Theyyam, Thirayattam, Poothamthira, Kanyarkali, Kummatti, etc., are some of them. Forms like Panappattu and Thottampattu are composed in the form of songs.

  • 12. Conclusion At last, we conclude that festivals, performances and folklores of both Himachal Pradesh and Kerala are widely different. Being aware of the knowledge of various cultures and traditions in a country, especially in India, can be so interesting. The way how both states perform different festivals, different dances, different folk art and stories can make a state look so unique. There are various other states too that conducts various festivals, folk dances, music, traditional stories and so on. India is a country which is rich in different cultures and traditions that makes our country unique from other countries.
