Abstract:In south India, the region comprising Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala, there are more than 100 tribal communities. Prominent among them are the Chenchus and Lambadis of Andhra Pradesh and the Todas and Badagas of Tamil Nadu. The tribals of southern India are quite simple in their way of life. Their artistic expression is primary and is confined chiefly to personal adornment - dress, textiles, and decorative accessories and some utilitarian objects. The following sub-sections are discussed in this article: Dwellings, Textiles, Ornaments, Tattoo, Baskets, Pottery, and Musical Instruments.
