Siddi Dance

The Siddis present tribal dances during marriages and other festive occasions. Their dances depict the tribal warfare of their home land in all its ferocity. Armed with shining sword and matchlock and dressed in their exotic primitive costumes, they dance with vigour and force.

In rural Andhra some folk dance forms are confined to certain regions, some dance forms are common to all the regions.
