Guitarmonk wishes “Teejan Bai” a warm greeting and remembrance on her birthday today. She is an exponent of Pandavni, a traditional performing art form, from Chhattisgarh, in which she enacts tales from the Mahabharata, with musical accompaniments. She Belongs to Pardhi (Scheduled Tribe) of Chhattisgarh state. Her big-break came, when Habib Tanvir, a famous theatre personality from Madhya Pradesh, noticed her talent, and she was called to perform for then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. There was no turning back from then on, in-time she received national and international recognition. Today she continues to enthralled audiences, the world over with her unique folk singing and her powerful voice; and passing on her singing to the younger generation.
