Tappeta Gullu is a devotional and lively
dance form performed by the men folk mostly in the three north coastal
districts of Srikakulam,
It was originally performed by and shepherds as a ritualistic dance to propitiate the Rain Goddess, Gangamma. Eventually, it evolved into a major festival and processional dance form. Tappeta Gullu is performed on different occasions and on different festivals. A group of 15-20 people perform this dance with drums around their necks, creating mesmerising beats and with heart stopping acrobatics.
