Yakshagana Performance at CHSV

22nd September 2014

In collaboration with the Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth (SPIC MACAY), Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam presented a YAKSHAGANA performance by Shivananda Hegde & Group from Sri Idagunji Mahaganapati  Yakshagana Mandali on 22nd September. Myth and legend came to life in our school AV room as the Yakshaganam troupe from Karnataka performed the mythological story ‘Vaali moksha’. Clad in colourful, gorgeous costumes, head gear and elaborate make up, the Yakshagana performers enamoured the audience with their gripping depiction of the events leading to ‘Vaali moksha’. Language was not a barrier and the students eagerly relished every scene. The dying scene of Vaali was so poignant that the audience watched in pin drop silence, breaking into thunderous applause as the scene ended.
