Nevertheless modernity has not left the tribal art  untouched as was evident  during the presentation by as many as 42 tribal teams at Town Hall. Many teams were using the modern day musical instruments to accompany their teams’ performances.

 The Siddi community  distinct to  Uttara Kannada district, the Koraga tribals of the coastal belt, Soligas of old Mysuru region, Jenu Kurubas and Kadu Kurubas have through their cultural organisations  presented shows wherein every effort has been made to retain the originality both in terms of performance  as well as musical instruments used.

Though the Siddi tribals  have presently amalgamated themselves in thee  religions they have not forgotten their roots and culture, says Juliana Fernandes, Member of Karnataka Janapada Academy who herself  belongs to the Mundagodu Siddi community. The Siddi tribals who mostly prefer to remain in the lap of  Mother Nature, have  this time bagged the Rajyotsava Award and Folk award for their rich cultural heritage.

The two-day event is organised by Union Tribal Affairs Ministry and introduced tribal art and culture to people of the coastal district. Sobina Mothes Siddi, Rajyotsava and Janapada Academy award winner too danced along with  folk artistes during the event.
