CHHAU performed at Bhavan's Vidya Mandir, Elamakkara.

Chhau Dance,the traditional art form of Bengal, jointly  organised by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kochi Kendra and SPIC MACAY was staged at Bhavan's Vidya Mandir, Elamakkara on 24 July 2023. A team comprising 16 artistes under the leadership of Tamal Kanti Rajak  performed a repertoire that explores the myth of Mahishasura Mardini. The reverberating drum beats of a variety of drums dominated the accompanying music ensemble. The vibrant music is characterized by the rhythms of indigenous drums like the dhol, dhumsa and kharka and the melody of the mohuri and shehnai. For the students of Std Vand VI who watched the performance in rapt attention, it was a unique experience and it gave them an insight into the rich legacy of artforms for which our nation is respected. The performance was live streamed for classes 1, 2, 3 & 4. Shri Tamal Kanti Rajak was honoured with a ponnada by the School Principal Smt Mini K. The aim of staging such indigenous art forms is an earnest attempt to acquaint the younger generation with the rich cultural and artistic fabric  of our nation.
