Tertali is performed by the female clan of the tribe. 2-3 female dancers commenced the performance while bending on the floor. Their heads are covered with hat or petha. The faces of the performers are covered with veil and small metallic cymbals locally called ‘manjiras’ tied on different portions of their physique. They create a perfect melody by striking on the cymbals knottedon their feet with the ones on their hands. The dancers clench a small blade between the teeth and balance a decorated earthen pot on the head while dancing with sharp hand & leg movements.
Their movements perfectly synchronized with the upbeat rhythm of the instruments and the tune of the songs. This vigorous dance performance is accompanied with the vocal singing of local folk songs and drumming. This unique style of dancing even attracts various dance troupes of Western countries who are travelling to these places in India to get proper training from the professionals of these prevalent Tertali dance forms.
