Villagers belonging to the Irula adivasi tribe in Serukkanur enjoying a session of music. The songs are impromptu and anyone can start singing. The themes are usually on the people present and their lives, teasing them and poking fun. The lyrics and tunes are all improvised as the song proceeds. When one person starts to sing, the others, including children, join in the chorus repeating the lines. Soon most begin to dance too.
