Along the banks of River Nila in Kerala, thrived many forms of art in the years gone by! One such incredible art-form is the enchanting percussion-based music; traditionally restricted to be performed within the confines of the temple sanctum sanctorum, find out the story of how one inspirational proponent of this art took the music to the masses. Follow the gradual decline of the art in the aftermath of his demise and revel in the struggle of his son to protect, document and nurture this precious heirloom of centuries.
Our Musical Trails are built with the objective to bring to travelers an authentic, rare piece of art that goes centuries back in time. The local community of students at the music school in Mulayankaavu will provide an introduction to the history and nature of their music, followed by a wondrous performance to cap off a magical evening!
