The award function always proved to be a grand and glorious tribute to the late maestro.

As Part of 89th birth anniversary of kalamandalam Krishnankutty Poduval on 28th May 2013, Kalasagar award will be presented to artists in the field of traditional performing art formssuch as Kathakali vesham, music, chenda, maddalam, & chutty (make-up), ottanthullal, chakyarkoothu, kootiyattam, mohiniyattam, bharatanatyam, kuchupudi, thayambaka, panchavadyam – thimila, maddalam, edakka, kombu, thalam. The awardees will be selected through nominations received from art lovers. The artists should be between the age group of 40-70 and well known performer/guru and should be a permanent resident within the state of Kerala. The nominations with bio-date is invited from the art lovers to reach to the secretary, Kalasagar, Kavalappara, Shoranur, Palakkad, Kerala 679 523 by 30th Apr 2013.

As usual there will be various cultural programs by the eminent artists after the award presentation.

Shri Krishnankutty Poduval, was a legendary player of the chenda and an informed critic of Kathakali. He studied the visual grammar and rhythmic structure of Kathakali under Guru Pattikkamthodi Ravunni Menon and went on to reinterpret the chenda‘s role in Kathakali. Poduval was reputed for tracing subtle emotions in the characters with his chenda, providing mood music to romantic scenes and prompting the actors to do their best on stage. His holistic understanding of Kathakali helped him integrate music with each visual. This remains an unparalleled achievement. Poduval scripted and directed many Kathakali plays like Bhishmaprathignya, Amba, King Lear, and Snapakacharitham. He left behind a treasure trove of knowledge on Kerala's performing arts in general and on Kathakali in particular - both at the theoretical and practical level.

Kalasagar Kavalappara
