Theyyam

An exceptional blend of dance and music, Theyyam is a sight to behold. The songs of Theyyam are known as Thottam Pattu (pattu- song). The costume and the elaborate headgear made with natural sources like leaves, spathes, flowers and natural powders are colourful and intricate. The movements and tempo have an essentially tribal nature.
