Dances of Kerala
Pages from the book
Dances of Kerala
Look Inside the Book
Description
Preface

The art forms of a country reflect the life of its people. They embody their emotions and experiences and are, therefore, the best expressions of their mind and culture.

The dances of Kerala illustrate this truth in a remarkable manner. The dance traditions can roughly be divided into five categories, viz, tribal dances, folk dances, classical dances, neo-classical dances and modern dances. Both the dance and dance movements are especially rich and variegated.

An attempt is made in the following pages to depict the dance traditions of Kerala in broad terms, supplementing the verbal portrayal with photographs wherever possible. Far from being scholastic, the approach has been in the nature of an introduction to a subject at once absorbing and vivacious.

This is primarily a broad study and lays no claims at being either exhaustive or authoritative. It is meant for the layman. This revised edition is on a wider format, with colour photos for illustration. Suggestions for improving the contents in a future edition are most welcome.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
