Villu Pattu – (Feb 08, 2020)

Villu Paatu (In Tamil, Villu means Bow and Pattu means Song) is an ancient form of musical story-telling with song and narration. The latter is interspersed with song. The main storyteller narrates the story striking the bow. The bow rests on a mud pot kept facing downwards. A co-performer beats the pot while singing.

During the Thaipusam 2020 celebration a cultural group from Edmonton arrived and performed Villu Pattu in Sri Murugan Temple.
