Konkani people hail mainly from the southern part of the Maharashtra coast, Goa, and coastal Karnataka. They are not unified by any state boundary but by their mother tongue Konkani. Despite belonging to different states, they share their daily lifestyles and rituals. Music of Nadaswaram, traditional style wedding saree, decorations with mango leaves and jasmine makes Konkani matrimonial a really memorable experience.
