Morule (Peacock song).

Morulo was first began in Sarwan village in Goa. The traditional business of the Sarwan villagers is selling of Suranga flowers.

Most of the trees in Sarwan are of the suranga. The peacocks came and roosted on these trees. But as they moved about, the buds of the suranga flowers dropped to the ground before flowering. So to shoo them away, the villagers used to shout and dance. This evolved into the ‘Morulo' dance.

With an orange vest and a loincloth around the waist; a blue cloth is tied to the head of the dancers with a feather of a peacock like a crown. The dancers, who are all male, tie ‘ghungrus’ to their feet. This makes a continuous jingling sound which creates its own rhythm.

The Morulo is an example of the ingenuity of the locals, transforming a mundane event of every day life into an entertaining activity like this dance form.
