Karalsman : The Dancing Charlemagne in Kerala, India

Research Paper by

Dr. Joseph J. Palackal CMI

A research paper presented at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York 1997. The Charlemagne legend existed in Kerala during the 16th century in two forms, namely in poetry in Malayalam-tamil (hybrid language of tamil and malayalam) and prose in tamil. The legend later became the story narrated during the performance of Chavittunatakam (ചവിട്ടുനാടകം) , a Christian theatrical performing art popular in central Kerala.


Our Mission

Christian Musicological Society of India is an international forum for interdisciplinary research, discussion, and dissemination of knowledge, on the music, art and dance of about thirty million Christians in India, who belong to a diverse set of communities and linguistic groups and follow a variety of liturgical traditions some of which date back to the early Christian era. Founded in 1999 by Dr. Joseph J. Palackal CMI, the Society hopes that such researches will draw attention to the lesser known aspects of India in connection with the rest of the world.
