Guru Chemencheri; a masterful performer

One of the living legends in the art of Kathakali, Guru Chemencheri Kunhiraman Nair is still young even in his 98. Age hasn’t withered the talent and grace in him. His relentless passion and undying spirit for the form makes him a permeating presence in the Kathakali stages. Born in 1916 June 16, Kunhiraman’s first stint with art was in theatre. But that interest later turned to Kathakali. That was a time of impoverishments for Kunhiraman as he had lost his father and mother. But he, however, found a way to learn the art and rest is all history. Ee Vazhitharayil, Episode 81.
