Kummatti Kali mask-dance

Indian theyyam artists performing the Kummati Kali mask-dance as part of the annual Onam festival in Thrissur, southern Kerala in September. The Hindu harvest festival of Onam, lasting up to ten days, celebrates the legend of King Mahabali, who was sent to the underworld by the fifth avatar of Vishnu, but visits Kerala once a year to ensure his people are still happy and content.
