Mohiniyattam Description

Mohiniyattam is an Indian classical dance which originated from Kerala, India. The word Mohini means woman and attam meaning graceful dance. Mohiniyattom is a dance meant to be performed as solo recitals by women. This dance moves are like swaying of broad hips and gentle subtle movements from side to side. Mohiniyattam has elaborate decription of mudras (gestural expressions by palm of hand and fingers.) Mohiniyattam costume is very distinctive in style. It’s made of plain off white in color sari which has embroidered bright golden brocade (known as Kasavu) on the edges. Hair is structured into a bun to a side which then is decorated with jasmine flower. For Mohinyattam dances, it’s all gold color jewelry used such as traditional Kerala jewelry. Mohiniattam music concludes of variations in rhythmic structure also known as chollu. The chollu is a mixture of Sanskrit and Malayalam. Mohiniyattam is accompanied by musical instruments such as violin, veena, and mridangam.
