Kuchipudi



Kuchipudi is the classical dance form from the South-East Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is known for its graceful movements and its strong narrative and dramatic character. It presents scenes from Hindu Epics and mythological tales through dance dramas combining music, dance and acting.
The performance usually begins with some stage rites, after which each of the character comes on to the stage and introduces him/herself with a small composition of both song and dance, to set the mood, of the character in the drama. The drama then begins. The dance is accompanied by song which is typically Carnatic music. The singer is accompanied by mridangam (a classical South Indian instrument), violin, flute and the tambura (an instrument with strings). Ornaments worn by the artists are generally made of a light weight wood called Boorugu.
