Performing for the first time in any event, the women’s bagpiper band increased the patriotic fervour of Independence Day celebrations manifold and also caught the attention of everyone present at the venue of the main event in Chhattisgarh’s capital.
The special performance of women bagpipers not just caught the attention of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, who was the chief guest of I-Day celebration in Raipur, but also managed to keep the public spellbound.
For the first time women bagpiper band performed and it was praised by everyone, said Bandmaster Renuka Chouhan, adding that on the beats of the band as well as patriotic tracks, the women bagpipers presented a very attractive and synchronized kick march as well as slow march.
The bandmaster further said, “Around 35 members are part of the band and they belong to 20th battalion from Mahasamund. The group members have taken training from Haryana and three bandmaster leaders have learned the techniques of handling stick. The team took training in playing the musical instrument at Panchkula for a timeframe of six months and also learned about different types of march-past.”
Filled with enthusiasm, bandmaster Renuka said that earlier, the team members neither heard about bagpiper band nor seen the performance of it. The team members only heard about brass bands. Now, we become the first women bagpiper band of Chhattisgarh.
“After overcoming every challenge during the training programme, we managed to learn handling the instruments as well as ensuring synchronized footsteps at the time of march-past,” said Renuka
