AASAN KALAH PARAI ISAI
Parai Isai online session is a vibrant means to promote the awareness and greater use of Tamil language among the Singapore youth. We believe that imparting of culture and heritage to our younger generation is vital in promoting the language. Percussions have always proven to be attractive for youth and the millennials are known to buy in to a concept more than a product. Thus we will employ the ancient and iconic Parai to attract the youth to connect with their mother tongue, Tamil.
We believe that such performance learning will create a deeper understanding and appreciation of our culture among the community level in addition to promoting of Tamil language. Through this session, we will introduce the students to the traditional drums of Parai and a brief overview of Parai Isai and its significance will be shown and discussed. Parai Isai is one of the most ancient of Indian musical art forms and is one of the oldest drums used in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Parai connects the mind and body and we want the students to benefit by learning about our ancient art form. They will be able to learn and display the basic beats and to appreciate the traditional art form of Parai Isai together with the learning of Tamil language through songs.
