The language used in Tholpavakoothu performances is a dialect of Tamil along with Sanskrit and Malayalam words.Performances are traditionally accompanied by musical instruments from Kerala such as the chenda, madhalam or ezhupara (a cylindrical drum made out of jackfruit wood and covered with calf-skin on both ends), ilathalam (cymbals), shankha (conch), chengila (gong), kurumkuzhal (a double reed wind instrument) and cherukuzhal.China has a history of puppetry dating back 3000 years, originally in "pi-yung xi", the "theatre of the lantern shadows", or, as it is more commonly known today, Chinese shadow theatre.By the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD), puppets played to all social classes including the courts, yet puppeteers, as in Europe, were considered to be from a lower social stratum.
There are many different varieties of puppets, and they are made of a wide range of materials, depending on their form and intended use.
Japan has many forms of puppetry, including the bunraku.
Bunraku developed out of Shinto temple rites and gradually became a highly sophisticated form of puppetry.
They can be extremely complex or very simple in their construction.
The simplest puppets are finger puppets, which are tiny puppets that fit onto a single finger, and sock puppets, which are formed from a sock and operated by inserting one's hand inside the sock, with the opening and closing of the hand simulating the movement of the puppet's "mouth".
Some forms of puppetry may have originated as long ago as 3000 years BC.
