Dancers and Singers

Theyyam Dancers are following a tradition that is more than two thousand years old.  The dancers come from the lower classes in this strictly class based society.  The center of this form of worship is in Kolathunadu, Kerala.  Claire Boucher, usually known as Grimes, comes from a solidly middle class background in the strictly class bound society of Vancouver, British Columbia.  The traditions she follows in her singing and composition date back a few decades.
