Kathakalippadams are the songs that accompany Kathali, the classical dance drama of Kerala. The songs support the actors during the course of performing a story and hence attain great significance. The style of rendition, clarity of singing, timing and presence of mind are crucial for a kathali singer, which would be well responded by the performers and highly appreciated by the audience.
Reckoned as one of the best kathakali singers that kerala has ever witnessed, the arrival of kalamandalam Haridas, also known as vennmani Haridas, into the domain of Kathakali singing was a refreshing experience to kathakali enthusiasts. This audio CD provides you with a masterful rendering by kalamandalam Haridas, featuring songs from one of the popular kathakali performance—Kalyanasougandhikam, being presented in an abridged form.
