Live footage of a Theyyamm ceromony in Malabar 2015 which I had the honour of filming. Even when the God stared me down! More about him below: Vishnumoorthi is a ubiquitous theyyam, with the Narasimhavatharam as its essence. It is a theyyam of the Malayar people, and is performed in the daytime. A Vellattam is conducted the night prior to the actual theyyam, where the thottam paattu is sung describing the origins and history of the theyyam
