May UUPG |  The Bharadi

May 1 - May 31

The word Bharadi comes from the word
“bharad” which translates into song or dance.
The bharadis have been historically asked to
perform traditional dance and song at weddings
or other religious ceremonies. This can include
a “ghondal” dance and involve a special kind of
drum, sometimes lasting hours at a time. They
are Hindu and primarily speak Marathi. Please
pray that the Bharadi people would exchange
the object of their singing and dancing to the
One true God. “Let them praise his name with
dancing, making melody to him with tambourine
and lyre!” Psalm 149:3
