Paathappattu: Death Ritual Song from Kadathanadu

You all would have listened to the superhit movie song “Palappalli Thiruppalli” from the Malayalam movie Kaduva. Do you know that the song is inspired by a death ritual song of the Pulaya community in Kadathanaadu?

Paathappattu, the song, outlines the beliefs of the community regarding the origin of the universe, the meaning of life, and what happens after one’s death. The song is sung here by Nanu Pattupura, a folk from north Kozhikode who has won Kerala State Folklore Academy Award.
