Oppana

 

Maidens and young female relatives sing and dance around the bride, clapping their hands and serenading tunes with innuendo that leave her blushing. This tradition is called Oppana, popular in the Muslim community of Kerala. Performed at other important functions in a girl’s life as well, its colourful ensemble and provocative lyrics light up the entire occasion. The songs of Mappilappattu are first sung by the leader of the posse and are repeated by the chorus.
