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.
