India | Kerala



Charadupinnikali, also known as Urikkali, is an art form prevalent in the districts of Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Alappuzha and Idukki. It is played as a part of Thiruvathira, the women's festival of Kerala. While performing this dance, the participants hold the cords hung at the place of performance. At the final stage of the play, these cords become a rough form of "URI" and later the URI is undone.
