This is an ancient group dance performed by the menfolk in Mysore, Nanjanagudu, Kollegala and Bangalore. It is named after the Kamsale used both as an instrument and as a prop by the performers. The kamsale involves a cymbal in one hand and a bronze plate in the other to create a cadenced bang. The dance is performed by the devotees of Mahadeshwara. The group size is usually around three to eight.
