The Enchanting Art Forms of Kerala: A Journey across Cultures

From vibrant street exploration in Kochi, committing to cosiness in Munnar, disconnecting with the world in Alleppey houseboats, staying with wilderness in Wayanad, experiencing the terrific Theyyam in Kannur, dancing with the elephant to the beats of Thrissur Pooram, Nature walks in Thekkady, having a tryst in Vythiri, parasailing in Vagamon, trekking with your crew in Vagamon, imbibing spirituality and mystery in Trivandrum, sighting the endangered Nilgiri Tahr in Eravikulam, to partying with your loved ones in Kovalam, God’s own country is a fine list of infinite natural adventures.

The arts of Kerala mirror its cultural pluralism and historical depth: a unique blend of dance, music, theatre, and visual arts. These art forms can also be indicative of the social and religious texture of this region. One of the famous art forms of Kerala is Kathakali, an ancient classical dance form characterized by its elaborate costumes, minute details in makeup, and expressive body gestures. Yet another famous art form of classical dance is Mohiniyattam, probably meaning 'dance of the enchantress,' which epitomizes graceful movements chartered out with emotive facial expressions.

Theyyyam is an important part of the ritualistic performance art in the region, associated with the cultural and spiritual lives of the people. It is an integration of dance, music, and drama, featuring elaborate costumes and facial makeup.

These forms of art, on the one hand, carry identifiably the rich cultural heritage of Kerala and are, on the other, continuously in evolution before a world audience. They present an inkling into the lavish past, spiritually rich history, and artistic finesses that this region has held out to make Kerala so unique and culturally enriching.
