Vayali, a group of young people from the cultural capital of Kerala, is engaged in preserving the roots. Connected together in way back 2004 for a common reason, to form a team to start learning the Traditional / Local Knowledge systems practiced in and around the banks of River Nila ( Bharatha Puzha ) and share / impart the same to the young generation. Vyali uses indigenous percussion instruments and colorful costumes to create foot-tapping music to preserve the dying Valluvanadan tradition and culture. Valluvanad is a culturally-rich place near Thrissur, famous for folk art culture, folklore and Classical art forms like Kathakali & Mohiniyattam. As age old people say, culture nourishes in the nature. Without nature a culture can’t exist, without a culture a society cannot.
