The ceremonial Meduva Kali
Folk art is deep rooted in the hilly regions of Kerala. Many tribal art forms like the Kambara dance, Kurumbar Nritham, Kolkali and the Meduva kali are quite famous. These are unique examples of art forms that belong to communities, which have an isolated existence and each of them presents its own distinct dance tradition that invariably speaks about the lives of the people in the hilly tracts.
Meduva kali is an art form special to the tribes of Wayanad or Wynad, or Vayanad district in Kerala, performed during wedding ceremonies. The dancers form small circles, moving in rhythm and dancing to the tune of local percussions.
