Terah Taali

Thirteen beats or terah tali, is an elaborate ritualistic folk dance form performed by skilled artists with thirteen manjiraas or brass discs in front of Baba Ramdev, a local folk deity of Rajasthan. This is a tradition taken forward by various dance proficient tribes of Rajasthan and has many elements of dance, which is performed by the dancers who tie brass discs on their waists, legs, arms, ankles , elbows and foreheads - at least thirteen places on their bodies, which they strike with the one that they hold. The dancers move on this rhythm. Often a sword is also held in their mouths and a pot is balanced on the head to add special effects to a spell-binding show that depicts true folk culture.
