Slama Carol - a musical dance related to resurrection of Christ
Slama Carol is a Christian musical dance that originated in the coastal areas of Alappuzha and Cochin (Kochi) in Kerala, India. Slama means shalom, which means peace. In this musical dance, happiness is the predominant emotion and the happiness is associated to the resurrection of Christ. The carol songs extol the resurrection of Christ. The major attraction of this dance form is its colourful costumes.
