There are so many folk dances in India that are kept alive by street performers who perform them brilliantly and enthusiastically.

A video of such a street performance of an Udupi folk dance from Karnataka is going viral. What makes this video special is a little girl who joins a folk dancer and wows the audience.

The video, posted on Twitter by tourism page Visit Udupi (@VisitUdupi), shows a woman approaching a dancer with a little girl and honoring her performance by putting a garland on her. The dancer then encourages the young girl to dance with him and she quickly resumes her movements perfectly as the spectators encourage them.

The video of this delightful interaction was posted on August 13 and it has since garnered over five lakh views.

While explaining the dance performance in the video, Visit Udupi wrote, “Pili Vesha in ‘Tiger Masque’ is a unique folk dance on the Karnataka coast. Here, young boys and men paint their bodies with yellow and brown stripes, wear a tiger mask on their faces, and dance to the rhythm of drums. Pili vesha is performed during Dasara and Krishna Janmastami.

Commenting on this video, a Twitter user wrote: “Remember watching and being mesmerized by Puli Vesham when you were a kid in Hyderabad too!!!! The days and street performers are gone .

In the comments, many people pointed out the need for the younger generation to learn their local performing arts. Echoing that view, one Twitter user wrote, “This is how we should teach and encourage our children.”

Another person wrote: “Cute and wow at the same time. Most kids this age are scared to look at their dress, but this little girl danced with them..”.
