Kuda Chozhi - 3
The video is an excerpt from Kuda Chozhi, a folk dance of Kerala. Kuda Chozhi is a part of Chozhikali, the popular folk art form. Kuda Chozhi is performed after the harvest season. The dancers are called ‘Chozhis’ and they go visiting houses in the village.
Folk songs depicting interesting tales are sung by the dancers themselves. While performing, the dancers hold a small ‘Kuda’ (umbrella) made of palm leaf and a ‘Visari’ (fan) in their hands. Thudi, a folk musical instrument is the main accompaniment.
