It is beautiful that you are writing about the wonderful art of kuttiyatam. It is really as magical a theatrical performance as you can ever experience. i hope to be able to come to kerala to watch a full performance some day. in the meantime i will never forget the drums……………. it beats right into your very being.

hope you are well. zach from ttrp
