We transport you there with the music of Kaav, one of India's more recent but more impressive bands. They've achieved so much in such a short span of time, and Myopusradio celebrates all their hard work, and of course, all their lovely music this October.
Behind the band name...
Kaav are small divine forests with vast variety of vegetation, snakes, small animals and birds as part of it. It can be also called as the natural shrines of Kerala which plays a great role in maintaining the ecological balance. Fears, mysteries, superstitions, religion, spirituality, evil and folk stories (Kettukathakal) are always associated with kaav. Kerala’s ancient art forms such as Kaliyattam and Theyyam originated in relation with these shrines. As it was the meeting place for the human psyche, it has contributed tremendously in the evolution of several art forms since primeval times.
