We are proud to present an online Tabla (Indian percussion) concert presented by the students of Pandit Suryaksha Deshpande.

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. Today’s 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.
