Nadaswaram holds a significant place in Hindu traditional weddings, particularly in South India, where it is considered a divine musical form often played in temples. This sacred musical tradition has become an integral part of wedding ceremonies for Hindus of all castes, symbolizing the divine essence of the occasion. Our company, Melodia Event Management, specializes in coordinating and arranging these teams for weddings.
In Kerala, where over 50% of the population comprises Hindu communities, Nadaswaram resonates throughout most wedding ceremonies. The Nadaswaram team consists of three main instruments in malayalam word: the Nadaswaram itself, the Thakil instrument and the Thalam instrument. The Nadaswaram artist, who plays the main instrument, requires a profound knowledge of Indian Carnatic music, which is predominantly performed during weddings. However, there are instances where old Malayalam and Tamil film songs are also played during the ceremonies.
The wedding festivities commence with the soulful tunes of Nadaswaram. As the groom arrives at the venue and takes his seat on the wedding stage, the wedding Nadaswaram team accompany him, while a group of girls (typically nine to thirteen) carry the ‘Thalam’ behind the Nadaswaram team. The bride, followed by her relatives, then proceeds to the wedding stage, escorted by the Nadaswaram team. Thus, Nadaswaram plays a pivotal role in Hindu weddings.
Throughout the ceremony, the wedding Nadaswaram team Kerala continues to create an aura of divinity, accompanying the rituals and enhancing the ambiance. The most significant moment, ‘Thalikettu’ (tying of the sacred thread), is gracefully accentuated by the mesmerizing melodies of Nadaswaram. Some Nadaswaram teams also offer ‘Kachery’ (musical performance) after the Thalikettu, upon request. While a minimum of three members is essential for a Nadaswaram team, Kerala weddings typically have a team of six to nine members. Melodia Event Management specializes in coordinating all the wedding ceremonies and providing the best Nadaswaram artists in major cities across Kerala.
Nadaswaram teams are not limited to weddings alone; they also perform at religious ceremonies, temple festivals, and events of various other religions.
