Seethakali folk art UPSC NOTE


  • Seethakali is a vibrant folk art with origins in Perinad, Kollam district, Kerala.

  • It began around 150 years ago, performed by Vedar and Pulayar communities.

  • Seethakali depicts episodes from the Ramayana, featuring characters like Rama, Seetha, Ravana, and Hanuman.

  • The performances narrate Seetha's journey from accompanying Rama to the woods to her ascension to heavens.

  • Traditionally, it was part of the Onam harvest festival, performed from Atham to the 28th day after Onam.

  • Performers use natural materials like bamboo and palm leaves for props and instruments.

  • Costumes and makeup are vibrant, and characters like Rama and Laxmana wear green, symbolizing deities in Kathakali.

  • Seethakali captivates with dynamic music, rhythmic movements, and folk songs passed down orally.

  • Kerala Folklore Akademi has played a vital role in reviving this unique art form.

  • Seethakali not only showcases cultural richness but also reconnects Kerala with its artistic heritage.
