Does not translate (Dance tradition of Kerala).

Kathakali originated in Kerala, South India over 500 years ago. It is a spectacular combination of drama, dance, music and ritual. Characters with vividly painted faces and elaborate costumes re-enact stories from the Hindu epics The Mahabharata and the Ramayana. Kathakali uses the training exercises of Kalari Pyattu, the martial art of Kerala.
