Sarpam Thullal

Sung as part of a ceremony called Sarpam Thullal followed by the Hindu community in Kerala, the songs involved at a particular stage of the ceremony are sung in praise of various serpent gods. Performed by the members of the Pulluva community, Kalam Pattu, songs rendered during the course of Sarpam Thullal ceremony are sung by the Pulluvan (male member of the Pulluva community) and Pulluvathi (female member of the Pulluva community).

This month, we have for you a song used for Kalam Pattu in Sarpam Thullal ceremony. The songs are usually accompanied by musical instruments viz. Pulluvakudam and Nanduni, both of which are string instruments with peculiar shapes.
