Mohiniyattam's roots, like all classical Indian dances, are in the Natya Shastra — the ancient Hindu Sanskrit text on performance arts. The repertoire of Mohiniyattam includes music in the Carnatic style, singing and acting a play through the dance, where the recitation may be either by a separate vocalist or the dancer herself. The song is typically in Malayalam-Sanskrit hybrid called Manipravalam. The earliest mention of the word is found in the 16th-century legal text Vyavaharamala , but the likely roots of the dance are older. Mohiniyattam, also referred to as Mohini-attam, is derived from " Mohini " — a famous female avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu in Indian mythology. Mohini refers to a divine enchantress or a supreme seductress. She appears in Hindu mythologies during a battle between Devas good and Asuras evil , after the evil had won control of Amrita nectar of immortality. Appearing in her youthful bloom, dressed rapturously she uses her charms to seduce the Asuras, who seeking her favors, give her the Amrita to distribute among the evil forces.
