Like its rich natural wealth, abundant backwaters, verdant hills, lush meadows and pastures, heritage buildings, palaces, holy shrines and museums, the music of Kerala has also got a long and glorious past leading to enriched present. 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. It’s strengthened by the fact that it was musical poetry which was first written and sung long before the prose was used. With the development of poetry-driven music, many experiments were done and new forms of music were devised. One of the two popular forms was classical music which was primarily known as Carnatic music that was also quite popular in Tamilnadu and Karnataka. The other form appealed to the masses a lot, as it became quite popular in films and music albums.

It was named so, as it was sung by the singers sitting on the steps leading to the holy shrines. The music used in the background in Kathakali Dances has got traces of Sopanam. The popular Malayalam Film music has developed not so long ago. Before the Malayalam music and its rendition existed in the background singing in music, Tamil and Hindi music was used a lot. In 1950s, the music was revolutionized as many popular Malayalam poets started penning and composing music for the film industry, giving it their own indigenous music.
