kannur, the city of looms and lores , can boast of its own folk artform- THEYYAM-.The theyyam time lasts for about 2-4 months in and around kannur in various "kavus" from almost mid oct . there are many forms of theyyams and with each of these demigods, strange but interesting stories and anecdotes are attached.
theyyams are very colourful and majestic to watch. their graceful movements are real treats to the eyes and the accompanying drum beats and songs add fervour to this wonderful artform.

Seeing a good theyyam was one of the highlights of my trip to southern India. They are often late at night, but it's worth it. Not all theyyams are the same. The second one I went to had many fewer people and was not as spectacular as the first. So it's worth asking to find out which are the best ones to go to as there are often more than one a night during the season.

We were fortunate enough to witness a Theyam ritual involving the dancer kicking hot coals with his bare feet. The locals were so friendly and offered us food every 10 minutes!
