Had covered it an earlier thread.

Yakshagana artists visiting home is a different concept than what I referred.

Yes, I know. That costume is closer to Bhoota kola. I was pointing out the common theme of house visits, which Pili Yesa & Yakshagana shares.

Brilliant colourful images!

Thanks for thread. All these days I thought Puli kali is only performed in Kerala during the Onam festivities.

Ahem, interesting. And I thought Pili Yesa was unique to my district...

Thanks for pointing out Puli Kali. This adds one more common tradition between Tulunad and Kerala. It is already a long list including Kalari.

Yes, pulikali was the first thing came into my mind seeing this; quite a big thing in Thrissur, as a part of Onam celebrations.

Thanks for sharing!

I think the hunter has been using a gun in Puli Kali for a long time (as far as I can remember seeing Puli Kali). It is good to see how cultures interact and evolve. It is also good to see the cultural threads that bind different cultures together.

A great example of "unity in diversity" (similarities between customs in parts of Karnataka and Kerala) and "diversity in unity" (customs that might be common in Udupi might be rare in another part of the same state)

Thanks for telling me something I didn’t know even after studying from Manipal and later working in Mangalore. I used to watch these rituals from far off believing that they had some black magic aspect to them.

Puli Attam/Puliyattam is also a folk dance form performed in Tamil Nadu and similarly there is Pulivesham in Andhra - Wiki

In fact, other places in India (Odisha's Baagh Naach) and Asian countries like Nepal and Japan also have some variants of the Tiger Dance - Wiki

*Both articles don't mention the Andhra folk dance form Pulivesham, probably a miss

Thanks Samurai for sharing, its always wonderful to see this. Pili dance has been shot to fame in recent past, thanks to Rakshith Shetty. During Navarathri you also get to see various types like Shardula(Lion), Karadi(Bear) etc. My favorite among these have been Pili and the "Koraggu/Koragga" which is banned now. I used to get shit scared on seeing Koraga vesha as a kid.

Yakshagana is a different breed. They visit home throughout the year and typically do it for livelihood. I have a video of this when they visited my home, but not able to find. The Navarathri/Marnami Vesha is a parake as you have mentioned.

Nice coverage of "pilivesha dance" with beautiful set of pictures Samurai.

Looks like the same team won a prize with cash reward in the competition held at Udupi.

I managed to squeeze in between heavy crowd and grab some pictures. Here are some photos.

"Vitlapindi" (Second day of Krishnashtami) celebration held at Car street, Udupi:

Awesome pictures, took me right back to my childhood. I guess i'll take my kids down to DK next year for this. Your pics caught the fervor so well!

What gear did you use to shoot the pictures and video ?

Costumes and make up donned by these artistes is just too good and amazing performers too

I was left wondering if this was in Bangalore or Udupi ?
Wrong question IMHO. Gear shouldn't matter, vision and executive matter a lot more :-)
