Pili Dance Portrait Series.

Pilivesha in Tulu
139 17,744 3 days ago
Pili dance portrait series.

pilivesha in tulu "tiger masque" (kannada: ಹುಲಿ ವೇಷ hulivēṣa) is a folk dance unique to the tulu nadu region karnataka. hulivēṣa is performed during navratri to honour the goddess durga whose favoured animal is the tiger. mangalore dasara is one of the festivals during which large number of enthusiasts participate in this ritual.

typically, young males form troops of five to ten members or more, which will have three to five males painted and costumed to look like tigers, and a band called thaase in tulu with two or three drummers. this troop is accompanied by the manager of the group. during navratri, these troops will be roaming the streets of their towns, with the accompanying drum beats of their bands. they stop at homes and businesses or on the road sides to perform for about ten minutes after which they collect some money from the people who have observed their performance.

the troops perform until the last day of navratri, and almost all of them form part of the sharada processions organized by various temples such as mangaladevi, gokarnanatheshwara and venkatramana temple. after the procession is over, performances are stopped and the paint is removed.

Thrissur Pooram.

It is an annual Hindu temple festival held in Kerala, India. It is held at the Vadakkunnathan Temple in Thrissur every year on the Pooram day - the day when the moon rises with the Pooram star in the Malayalam Calendar month of Medam. It is the largest and most famous of all poorams.

Thrissur Pooram was the brainchild of Raja Rama Varma, famously known as Sakthan Thampuran, the Maharaja of Cochin. Before the start of Thrissur Pooram, the largest temple festival in Kerala was the one-day festival held at Aarattupuzha known as Arattupuzha Pooram. Temples in and around the city of Thrissur were regular participants. In the year 1798 because of incessant rains, the temples with from Thrissur were late for the Arattupuzha Pooram and were denied access to the Pooram procession. Feeling embarrassed and angered by the denial, the temples[clarification needed] authorities raised the issue with Sakthan Thampuran.

This made him take the decision to unify the 10 temples situated around Vadakkunnathan Temple and organized the celebration of Thrissur Pooram as a mass festival. He invited temples with their deities to the city of Thrissur to pay obeisance to Lord Vadakkunnathan (Lord Siva), the presiding deity of the Vadakkunnathan Temple. Something unique about this festival is that everything used in the festival is made fresh every year from scratch. There are people who are given the duty to craft the umbrellas and the nettipattam.
