her performance of Pandavani or the ballads of the Pandavas from the Mahabharata in Central Park as part of the Raag Rang Festival organised by Sahitya Kala Parishad on Sunday As we chat Teejan talks about the traditional way of singing Pandavani — a folk singing style where tales from the Mahabharata are narrated The form originated in Chhattisgarh and was performed exclusively by men Teejan is the first woman from the Pardhi community (the one known to sing this form) to perform Pandavani “The day I decided that I was going to sing Pandavani I was beaten black and blue by my father No woman

always lapping up bhajans by her mother and Pandavani her grandfather Brijlal Pradhi sang to her But her singing the form professionally soon had her ostracised from her community — the Pardhi tribe for being a woman singing Pandavani “I am glad there were people who loved what I was doing and began inviting me despite me living in a small hut away from everyone Do you know I have been to Paris eight times now” says Teejan who is the recipient of the Padma Shri and a Sangeet Natak Akademi award But what bothers Teejan most is that none of her children perform the Pandavani She has never made them learn either “But I teach I have more than 200 students across the world” says Teejan who never learnt music formally “Arey classical training kahan se karenge bitiya Hum toh bas performance dena jaante hain” says Teejan and begins to tune the ektaara the one she brought along from her village with that confidence of the Gods she left behind in Ganiyari For all the latest Lifestyle News
