- Halakki harvest dancer: A segment of population in Uttar Kannada enjoys a distinct identity as Halakki Vokkaligas. At harvest these folks don their heads with bouquet of finery and glitter woven round the pith, and dance gaily beating their sticks in synchronized harmony with sounds that reverberate out of jagate and Gumate and Maddale.

- Badaguthittu Yakshagana: Northern coastal Karnataka style: Along the coastal Karnataka, Yakshagana goes by two stems; one is called Thenkuthittu and the other is Badaguthittu. Basically the source is the same art form but the differences get accentuated in facial lineaments, costume design, gait and dance steps, and so on. In just a small part of Dakshina Kannada, and in some parts of Uttara Kannada, the Badaguthittu Yakshagana is strikingly popular. Eye-filling site is the regal crown that adorns the head to match Kedige Mundasu in such grandeur. Backstage artists move on the wooden basement or the floor in resonance with the narrative song, rendered by the Bhagavatar, against the choral ensemble of Chande and Maddale, vibrating the entire show. Not infrequently many an improvised stuff will sneak into the amusement of the audience. Add to it, there comes up long drawn out debates and verbal confrontations. Episodes are drawn from the epics Ramayana, Mahabharata and other Puranas.
