As Kerala Tour Travel Company, Music has always played an important part in the Malayalam Language and most of it is driven by Malayalam poetry.

Kerala Tour Travel Company – A Delight to the Senses ‘Mural Art of Kerala’

Art is an expression of the human soul. For ages, humans have been depicting their innermost feelings about everything around them on a canvas, splashing it with colours. In ancient times, the cavemen used walls as their canvas, using coal or chalk as their pencil to draw child-like drawings on the wall, sometimes filling it with colours made from vegetables, plants or stones. Right from the pre-historic ages, the not-so-developed humans at that time drew a lot on the walls. The ancient tradition of painting on a wall is still going on even today, with artists like Michelangelo having been taken it to a new unimaginable height as he painted the Bible on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. In India also, these wall paintings have been made profusely in temples and churches across cultural hubs like Kerala. Mural painting, as it is popularly known, is an ancient art in which the stories from mythology were depicted on the walls. Archaeologists have found these artefacts in Kerala that demonstrates the artist’s impression about the life and times around him.

Anjanad Valley in Idduki district in Kerala has got lot of rock paintings which archaeologists believe, were made in pre-historic times. From there, the tradition of drawing on the wall must have passed on from generation to generation, with every artist adding and giving a new dimension to it. As Kerala Tour Travel Company, the fact that the similar rock paintings were also found in Edakkal in Wayanad and at Perumkadavila in Thiruvanathapuram (Trivandrum) strengthens the notion that Kerala was one of the hubs of dispersing the tradition of wall painting to the other parts of South India. The popular mural art, dating back to 7th or 8th century, having a heavy influence of Pallava Art, is a successor to the ancient tradition of painting on the walls.

History and Art play an extremely important role in developing an understanding for a culture of a country.

Kerala Tour Travel Company – A Dance Form for Masses & Classes ‘Kathakali’

India is a land of rich and delightful cultures. Every state is known for its pleasant cultural heritage. Whether it’s a style of painting or a way of dressing, or food or dance forms, all the states have got their distinct hallmark by which they are recognized. However, most of the cultures of India are known particularly by their distinctive mark in the fields of art like painting, sculpture or dance forms. Being Kerala Tour Travel Company, one of the most elegant displays of fine arts in the field of dance can be seen in the prevalent dance forms of Kerala. These various forms were initially originated from the popular traditional stories amongst a local group of people but, with the passage of time, they evolved into classical dance forms with mass appeal. Amongst the prominent and famous dance forms from Kerala is Kathakali which is believed to be originated in 17the century. With time, Kathakali has reformed itself in terms of its themes, make-up and gestures etc. The attention-grabbing make-up of the dancers, their elegant movements of facial expressions, hands and body and their dressing have taken a new shape with the passage of time.

Kathakali incorporates, not one but a lot of other dance forms in it. As Kerala Tour Travel Company, one may find its similarities with a classical drama in Sanskrit enacted in Kerala and with a musical adaptation of old Sanskrit dance form. Many other dance forms performed ritualistically in Kerala have also been accommodated in it. The body language of Kathakali has got the traces of Kalarippayattu – a martial art prevalent in south India. It quickly gained acceptance with the masses as the language of the performance was made relatively simpler, with Malayalam and some Sanskrit used as a language of the dance form. Kathakali received a new dimension when it was used to perform in many Indian and international literary plays, popularizing the art form amongst the common individual. As Kerala Tour Travel Company, the successful renderings of stories of Mahabharata and other epics caused Kathakali to be readily accepted by the theatre-visiting average man. More attempts to popularize it further are constantly being done by its performers.
