KANNUR: The District Library Council will organise a folklore seminar at the Velam Public Library, near Mayyil, on Saturday.

The seminar would be followed by folk performances such as Poorakkali, Marathukali and Kolkali at the library, which was adjudged the model library in the district, said organising committee general convener K.P. Kunhikrishnan at a press conference here on Thursday. The objective of the programme was to popularise folk art, he said.

Marathukali, a folk performance in which two persons representing two temples engage in polemics on philosophy, literature and astrology, would be given special attention, he said. A Marathukali demonstration would also be held, he added.
