Each player has 2 sticks and using the sticks they produced the sounds. The true beauty of this event comes with more participants because it is the sound of the sticks that keeps the spectators enchanting. There are total of 11 note played in this event (theme sound and 10 other sounds called “Kulhi”). The theme sound is called Mulhi Fo Mulhi Fo. Among the players there is a leader called “Mudheeru” who commend and lead others. There is a commending language that guides the players during the event. The starting commend is “Chudiko” and the players respond with “Haey Vaa” and the theme sound is played for few minutes and then the next commend is called by Mudheeru. In this process the theme sound is chnge to alternative sound (Kulhi), this process is called Kulhiah Dhiun.
