Monday, December 12, at Right- wrist should always remain above the level of Tabla. Elbows should not rest on any part of your body. One should form a habit from the beginning to sit with his face quite up, looking to the audience and having no tension on face or any part of body. It is noticed in general, the beginners hide their face or shrug their shoulders or do some odd while they try to play.
In correct posture, one can communicate to his audience better and entertain them maximum by his tabla playing. Art of Accompaniment A Tabla player should always remember that his work is to keep the Taal and help the main artist to bring out his best. Time to time he has to put his skill of Layakari to increase the affect of the performance. In the first kind the Tabla player should be very prompt and ready to go together with the singer or player in his improvisations.
Only talented and experienced artists can do it. In the second kind of Sangat, Tabla player waits until the singer completes the one improvisation and then he gives reply with a similar work. In this he should have the capacity to compose spontaneously. Command on Tall and Layakaris is essential for a good accompanist. Hand should also be prepared to reach any and every required speed.
Tabla player must also know about the balance of right and left hands. How to give a Tabla Solo performance You must first think of the time duration of your Tabla Solo item and the material you have at hand, ready to play.
The prescribed way of solo is to put the things in following order: You should select the Laya in which you can show your best skill of Layakari. The material should be arranged in such a way that is no monotony in expression.
The total performance should be in an ascending line, reaching to the climax. You can also peak few compositions showing the Taal by clapping. As we know the Sam is the first beat of the Taal and it is that important point where singer and Tabla player meet again and again. This helps singer or player to know his position in the time cycle. Numbers like 2, 3 are to show the Taali. Ia also help in writing Layakaris. In writing half Beat or quarter Bear the Avagraha plays s vital role.
For example: After Awagraha if cama is put that means the division of the particular Matra is equal value. Few Definitions Matra: Regular matras, make the Laya.
Number of matras determines time-cycle or Taal. Taal means a time- cycle with fixed number of beats. Each Taal has fixed divisions and a set of Bols with fixed number of Taali and Khali.
In Theka the Taal gets its full expression. It means from the first beat of the Taal to the last beat of it. Laya Laya means speed or Tempo in Music.
Normally there are three kinds of Laya. Vilambit slow 2. Madhya medium 3. Druta fast Kayda Kayda is the primary composition for practice in Tabla. It brings discipline to your fingers. It prepares you for advance compositions. It has two section, one with Khule Bols and other with Band Bols.
It is improvised in paltas by changing the sequence of Bols within the main composition. Rela Rela is a small composition like Kayda But it is played in fast laya. It is also improvised and elaborated with variations. Gat Gat is a special composition which is complete in itself. It is neither improvised nor it has Khula or Band section.
Great Tabla players have composed beautiful Gats which are passed on from generation after generation. These Gats show their skill and their flight of thoughts. They are as under 1. Kaal 2. Marga 3. Kriya 4. Anga 5. Graha 6. Jati 7. Kala 8. Laya 9. Yati Prastar 1. In music the time is measured by Matra.
In Indian music the Taal is very important. Taal is a time cycle of particular number of bears as Teentaal is 16 beats time cycle and Ektaal is 12 beats time cycles. The composition consumes one are more time cycle of the Taal. The total beats consumed in a particular composition determine the KAAL factor of music.
There are number of Beats, Division, Tali and Khali, the movement and the syllables set in each beat by which a particular Taal ia conceived. Marga means the method and movement of the Taal used in music.
But in present context we neither use them nor understand them. There we can find some meaning of this term. In present context these terms are not understood. In the movement of the Taal, divisions play a vital role. They have 6 varites of ANGA: Like in Teentaal there are four divisions and in each division there are four beats. In Kamatak Taal system, 17 this term is understood differently. It means the method or the style in which a musician gives his performance.
There are different schools of though in our Music. Each Gharana has different style of expression, different use of Taal and different method of improvisation. Music is comprised of two elements, one is Shruti and other is Laya. There are further verities also musical composition expressing different emission is in different Layas. Laya has must to do for emprovisation and elaboration of the composition.
Different Taal and Thekas are used for different Layas.
It starts very fast and then gradually slowest and slows to the slowest. The composition which starts abruptly in a high speed and step by step proceeds with uneven flow ending in a normal rhythmic pattern. It means the elaboration or improvisation in total development of Taal. It covers the whole performance.
As we know any musical performance is just the expression of emotions. Taals for day to day Use 1. There are innumerable variations of these Taals in practice. Teentaal or Tritaal: Actually if one masters this Taal he can do with any other Taal.
Now a days Top musixians are doing experiments in music and they revive old Taals and put them into use. In other Sanskrit books we get an account of many other Taals which are not in use these days.
One should not be baffled by a new Taal or a new name. Sometimes a new name is given to a variation of a traditional Taal.
A variation of Teentaal is called Addha Titaala. Another variation is called Sitrkhani or Punjabi. For Thumri style of singing the same Teentaal with a little variation is called Thumri Theka.
There are innumerable variations with different names of the Taals is use. Mathematic calculation is dominant. Normally this is played in Madya or Drat laya. It includes Tabla bols, variations and fillers. Tabla is the most used percussion instrument Continue to app Rating: Click stars to rate this APP! Tapped Out. Newsletter Submit. Free Trial 7.
