    Hello Namaste,

    The Thakar Adivasi Kala Angan respectfully addresses you the present
    letter in order to inform you about the available cultural programs of
    our tribal culture. The ancient village of Pinguli in the Konkan region
    of Maharashtra has been home for nearly five hundred years of a wide
    variety of ritual performance arts. Due to the lack of support and the
    pressures of modernity in the region these invaluable heritage is in
    risk of disappearance. With the purpose of preserving the Adivasi
    artistic heritage our trust, led by Shri Parshuram Vishram Gangavane,
    has been working for more than thirty five years performing the
    traditional arts across India; and most recently with the opening of a
    Thakar Adivasi museum (May 2006) as well as a training program in the
    art of Chitrakathi paintings.
    Our group is currently able to perform the following traditional Thakar arts:

    -Kalsutri Bahulya: This
    folkloric form of string marionette theatre is accompanied by a local
    orchestra consisting of dholak, zanj, tuntune and singing. The
    marionettes’ heads and hands are carved in wood while the rest of the
    body is adorned with colorful clothes. The marionettes are manipulated
    from behind the stage by a single puppeteer who is also in charge of
    giving voice to the characters. The stories which are presented are
    taken from the epic of the Ramayana and Mahabharata.

    -Dayti: The dayti is
    the Thakar Adivasi form of the shadow puppet theatre. The characters
    are built using goat skin and the characteristic style of the Pinguli
    painting school. As in the above mentioned art form, the stories are
    drawn from Ramayana and Mahabharata. The movements of the puppets,
    illuminated from behind the screen with an oil lamp, are accompanied by
    traditional music and the use of a shell to mark the entrance of the
    important characters.

    This is one of the few storytelling traditions alive in Maharashtra.
    With the help of paintings showing scenes of the ancient epics,
    the sutradhar unfolds the tale supported by the music of the vina, the
    taal and the huduk. It is in this type of performance that the stories
    of the Nandipuran are told showing the particular syncretism of Shiva
    and Vishnu religious paths.

    Another eight
    ritual arts are present in our village including radha nrutya, the
    fugdya folk dance of the women, the pangul bael with the sacred bull and
    the potraja where the dancer burns himself to take the evil away. We
    have also shows which take on social issues as AIDS awareness and global
