Naattupurapaattu is a form of Tamil folk music and Tamil folk culture.

Tamil Nadu has a very ancient and rich form of folk music, some of which is disappearing due to the importance given to Carnatic music as well as the pop movie industries taking over.

Some of the well known Tamil folk singers today are Dr. Vijayalakshmi Navaneethakrishnan, Pushpavanam Kuppusamy, Anitha Kuppusamy, Chinnaponnu and Paravai Muniyamma.
