As I have been gearing up mentally for my upcoming year in Delhi, I have been looking for more online writings about Hindustani music and although I have seen his blog before, I never spent much time reading his posts. But I wish I had! Deepak Ji maintains a great blog with constant additions and great insights. I recommend it to anyone interested in Hindustani music. Enjoy!

Digging this groove and rela today.
I was recently inspired by an amazing bedum tihai posted by the tabla maestro @rupaktabla_official where he used a calculation into rupak theka in a 3/4 time (dotted 16th notes). So here is a similar idea but using Dadra as the 3/4 timing. Thank you for the constant inspiration Rupak bhai! 🙏🏼

Some trippy ideas from a playful kaida today….
These are some not so common variations of a very common traditional rela over an uncommon nagma pattern…. 🤷🏻♂️🙌😊
