Kummi

In Kummi, girls sing several songs. Kummi consist of common Kummi and the Oyil Kummi. In the common Kummi, the dancers are rhythmical and the girls dance in different postures. The rhythm of both dance and music delights the audience. The word Kummi is said to be derived from Kommai and means to 'dance with clapping of hands' to time and singing poems in a metre adopted to Kummi dance.
