Parichakali



Parichakali is a popular folk art form performed in the islands of Lakshadweep, except in the Minicoy Island. It is performed in almost all occasions. The dozen performers dressed in a lungi round the waist, tightened by special twisting, hold replicas of a wooden sword and a wooden shield. They play it in circles or by facing each other in two lines. The leader sings a song accompanied with a cymbal locally called as 'kinnaram'.
