This 4-week series will focus on one dance: Dappan kuthu, from Tamilnadu. This is a folk dance with an emphasis on percussion. It is one of several popular genres employed in film music, mainly in Tamil cinema and other South films. This is relatively informal and shares its emphasis on percussion with older folk dances of Tamil Nadu, such as kummi and kolattam.
