Click here for the link to the previous occasion on which the trio performed the same theme in the Divine Presence. Burra in Telugu means skull or head. In this context it refers to a musical instrument similar to a Thambura, with strings and hollow round base similar to the head. So Burra Katha is an entertaining musical narrative which consists of small songs, poems and dialogue. But what makes it as popular as it is, is the humorous manner in which the theme is rendered.
The troupe consists of one main performer and two co-performers. The main performer, the Kathakudu, renders the entire theme, in song, all the while, playing on the Tambura and dancing to music. He also plays a small rhythm instrument called andelu. The performer on the left side of the kathakudu is called hasyaka - he is the humorist. On the right side of the kathakudu is the rajakiya. He is the knowledgeable narrater who brings out the entire theme as a conversation with the hasyaka.
The co-performers play an instrument called gummeta also referred to as dakki , an earthen drum with two heads. All three wear anklets or gejjelu.
This art form was instrumental in arousing nationalist feelings during the Indian independence movement and is a very effective communication tool. However, it was a dying art form as patronage was in acute scarcity in this technological era.
That was when Swami stepped in and resurrected it! The trio started the programme with songs in praise of Lord Ganesha and Bhagawan Baba. They start the story with the past life of Parvathi when born as Sati, she marries Shiva against the will of her father Daksha.
Daksha conducts an Yajna without inviting his son in law. Sati attends the Yajna without being invited and is insulted by her father. Sati immolates herself in shame and Shiva takes revenge by destroying the Yajna through Veerabhadra.
Sati is reborn as Parvathi to Himavanta, the lord of the mountains and a great and kind hearted king. Sage Narada approaches Himavanta and suggests that Parvathi should be married to Shiva for the sake of the welfare of the world or Loka Kalyanam. Parvathi prays to Shiva and with a basket of flowers walks to where Shiva is meditating. Seeing the sight, Parvathi faints and Shiva walks back to Kailasa.
Summoned by Parvathi he sings a song praising her bridegroom. He comes back as a old brahmin and tells her that they have to get married as the stars deem so. Parvathi says she will marry only Shiva and none else. Pleased Shiva appears in their presence and consents for the wedding. Email This. Prasanthi Nilayam?
