Folk Dance
Muslim Arts Forms

Muslim Kolkali is similar to the Kolkali practiced by the Christians and Harijans. It is a group dance in a circle with short sticks in the hands of the dancers with which they make the rhythm by beating them. The vibrant steps are accompanied by the vocal music consisting of meaningless syllables followed by songs. The dance goes from slow to a fast tempo creating an interesting climax. There are diverse choreographic patterns in the dance. Males only participate in this dance and they require basic martial training.
