Yakshagana Badagu Thittu – Northern Style (Unlike the Thenku Thittu or the Southern Style) has strong traits of performance both regionally and individually. Hence the Yakshagana in and around Udupi and Kundapur is usually referred to as Badagu (North) and the Yakshagana of Uttara Kannada district as Bada-Badagu (North of North). It has been observed and documented by researchers and scholars that unequivocally Karki Yakshagana traditional style is the one and only original style of Uttara Kannada and is the oldest and representative of Bada-badagu Thittu. Karki Style and Mela have a known long history of 9 generations (around over 200 years). A few variations of Bada-Badagu style emerged over a period of time as a result of self-made changes and adoption of traits of Udupi-Kundapur style of Badagu. These were identified as individual styles like Gharanas in Hindustani music. The public usually identifies the individual styles by the family name of the exponent. (Ex.: Keremane Shivarama Hegde style as Keremane style). However original Karki style continued and is identified as Hiriya Paramayya Hasyagar’s style which is also known as Hasyagar’s style or simply Karki style (Family and Regional name).
