PANDAVANI RECITAL AT DAV SAHIBABAD BY TEEJAN BAI

Keeping in view the sheer significance of providing the students a wide exposure of a plethora of Indian classical music and dance, DAV Public School Sahibabad in collaboration with SPIC Macay organised an exquisite Folk Theatre Pandavani by the illustrious Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri and Sangeet Natak Akademi Award recipient Dr. Teejan Bai, exponent of Pandavani on 6th December 2017. It is a traditional art form from Chhattisgarh in which she enacts tales from the Mahabharata with musical accompaniments with her team. The performance included enacting and singing with a tambura which acted as a prop to personify the mace of Arjun, bow or chariot or even the hair of Draupadi. Dr. Teejan Bai has enthralled the audience all across the world by travelling as a cultural ambassador to England, France, German, Turkey and Switzerland. It was electrifying to watch her enact various characters with ease and candour while performing a scene from Draupadi’s Swayambar. The exponent and her group were extended a warm welcome by the Principal of the school Sh. V.K. Chopra who introduced and highlighted the greatness of the art form in his Welcome Address. The audience comprising of students of classes VI-XII were charged by her power packed voice and performance.
