A dancer named Mithuja shared the video which is now going around the world. In the music video, she danced the traditional dance Dappankuthu or simply Kuthu with Usha Jey and Janusha. The women wore white kurta sets and performed a beautiful dance to the Tamil song Dia Dia Dole for the crowd. Kuthu, on the other hand, is a type of dance that emphasizes drumming.

“Let go of your body and mind. Kuthu is a way for us to release our emotions. It is the rawest form of ourselves. We are really happy to have been able to represent our culture in such an important competition as the #CommonwealthGames22. I felt unreal performing our Tamil street dance there,” Mithuja wrote of the clip while sharing it.
