Photographer's Note

Teratali dance is performed by the women of the Kamad caste accompanied by men playing the Dholak, Manjira & Tandura. They tie Manjira (cymbals) to their body and play with dexterity with hands.

This dance form is attached to devotional and ritualistic practice of worshiping Baba Ramdeo who is believed to have lived around the beginning of the 16th century and emerged as god for the down-trodden and hierarchically low castes. The women sing and dance in praise of Ramdeo and his miracles.

I watched Teratali dance in Udaipur.
