    which the Kodavas worship as their prime deity.

    and beat it to different rhythms while also
    dancing.

    celebratory form of spirit worship prevalent in
    south Karnataka region. It is performed mostly in

DANCES OF NORTH KARNATAKA
  • Jaggahalige Kunita
  • This is a folk art of the Hubballi Dharwad
    region, particularly of the 'Byahatti' village.
    It is performed on occasions such as Yugadi and
    Holi. Jagghalige is essentially a percussion
    instrument made of a bullock cart wheel with
    buffalo hides wrapped around.
  • Karadimajal
  • This is a popular folk orchestra of the north
    Karnataka region. It is performed during various
    auspicious occasions and in processions. The
    Karadi or Karade is the percussion instrument
    that is used in the orchestra. It is a palm sized
    cymbal that produces metallic sounds while the
    Shehnai is used to produce the melody.

DANCES OF MALENADU
  • Bhootha Aradhane
  • This dance form is widely performed in the
    coastal areas of Karnataka. The Bhootha Aradhane
    or Holy Spirit (Shiva Gana's) worship, includes a
    procession of idols depicting 'bhoothas". This
    procession is characterized by the beating of
    drums and bursting of firecrackers. After the end
    of the procession, the idols are placed on a
    plinth. Then, a dancer personifying a Bhoota
    (Holy Spirit) dances around the plinth with sword
    and jingling bells.

  • Yakshagana
  • Yakshagana is a dance drama performed in the
    coastal areas of Karnataka. This unique dance
    form is a perfect blend of dance, music, songs,
    scholarly dialogues and colorful costumes.
    Yakshagana mesmerizes each and everyone in the
    audience with its enchanting music and colorful
    performances.
  • The word Yakshagana literally means celestial
    music. This dance drama is also performed
    throughout the night, usually after the winter
    crop has been reaped.

  • Yakshagana is said to be the most popular dance
    form of the state just as Bharathnatyam is for
    Tamil Nadu and Kuchipudi is to Andhra Pradesh.
  • Some of the famous dancers of Karnataka include
  • Dancing duo -Radha Ravi
  • Usha Datar
  • Cinema/Theatre personalities - Sudha Rani and
    Sridhar.

    actors of Karnataka. Some populations of these
    artists are native to Andhra Pradesh also.

    miming and their performances are extempore. No
    formal stage or facility is used. The artists
    move from place to place and pitch tents in
    places where they offer to perform their show.

    state of Karnataka, India. It is a vigorous dance
    based on Hindu mythology and involves very
    intense energy-sapping dance movements.

    is performed during festivals and mainly in the
    Hindu months of Shravana and Karthika.
