Amrita TV kicks off reality show ‘Super Troupe’

#1
MUMBAI: Malayalam general entertainment channel Amrita TV is airing Super Troupe, the first ever reality show for Gana Mela troupes in Kerala.

Super Troupe will air every Saturday and Sunday at 8.30 pm.

Inaugurated by Udayabhanu, the playback singer of yesteryears, the show will present state’s 12 selected troupes.

Each troupe will include singers, backed up by its own orchestra.

The channel has chosen troupes from the chain of auditions conducted in Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut. The troupes are drawn from Trivandrum, Aluva, Pala, Cochin, Kannur, Calicut and Malappuram and consist of six singers and a ten-piece orchestra.

The contestants will be judged by a three member jury panel consisting of music director Ouseppachan, playback singer Biju Narayan and a celebrity judge who will change with every round.

The Gana Mela traces its origin to the Koothu Patrai of Tamil Nadu, a combination of music, dance and acting, enacted in the temple premises before a small crowd of devotees. This temple oriented art form evolved to its present ‘music orchestra group’ over decades, gradually moving out from the temple to the Utsav grounds and auditoriums and the content of the concerts shifted from devotional music to film songs.

The channel claims that Super Troupe is its attempt to “revive an art form that has been sliding into decline” and to help it to “recover lost ground through the highly popular medium of a reality show”.
