Artstanding is an online forum to showcase the outstanding artist in you. As our series continues, we are happy to bring to you a tabla solo presentation by three students of Pandit Suryaksha Deshpande.
Pandit Suryaksha Deshpande is a disciple of Pandit Arvind Mulgaonkar, who was a disciple of Ustad Amir Hussain Khan Saheb. Ustad Amir Hussain Khan Saheb was one of the most revered tablamaestros of the Farukhabad Gharana, known for his composition of various well known bandishes.
The Farukhabad Gharana was originally founded by Ustad Haji Vilayat Ali Khan Saheb. Through the work of maestros like Ustad Amir Hussain Khan Saheb and Ustad Ahmedjan Thirakwa Khan Saheb, the Farukhabad Gharana has flourished and is massive part of tabla playing today. The Farukhabad Gharana is known for its vast collection of beautifully composed Gats and its popularization of Peshkaar.
The three students: Soham, Eshan, and Sumit will be presenting a solo in taal Jhaptaal. Several of the compositions in their performance today revolve around the concept of “Murchana”, where a composition is played such that it sounds as if it is from a taal different than the one it is actually being played in. This performance makes use of this by entering into “Tisrajaati”, which involves the the fitting of 6 laggus or bols into 1 maatra or beat. In the Peshkaar, the three will also enter “Sankirnajaati”, which fits 9 laggus into 1 maatra. The use of these techniques allows for the feeling that the compositions are being played in the 15 maatra taal: Pancham Sawaari, while in reality, the frame remains that of the 10 maatra taal: Jhaptaal. The performance will begin with a peshkaar, followed by a couple of kaydas and a rela, and will proceed to end off with a few tukdas. With that in mind, we hope you enjoy their performance.
