How do you play dhit te tay? and can you play it in benares style?

sitar player is so bored right now!!


kjaan April 14, 2009 at 7:12 pm

That is not sitar that he is playing. That instrument is called Tanpura. There is a big difference between those two instruments.

I think between 4:15 and 4:20 he plays
Dha tite dhe re dhe ge na dha ti dha ge tin na ke na + khali and then variations
here both dhe re and dhe are played with base drum… I think he cuts out the re in the 2nd dhe re
I might be entirely wrong though
PS: eta rela ta namiye phalo… tomar favourite boler opor ache 🙂

Ustd.Zakir Hussain is most responsible to bring the glamour in Tabla. Whole new generation know his name .What a perfection. His skills are Extra ordinary. All the Tabla student in the nation try to copy him. He is Lovable.

waaah ustaad waaah.

this is so beautiful thanks kjaan.
what is a teen taal?

and the last part is so much like a train on a track especially if you’ve been on a train with the windows down and listened to the tracks.

I love this music, as I loved his fathers music.


ThatIsTheWhatIs March 11, 2011 at 12:44 am

@projjwalb Almost right.. he’s playing:
Dha Traka dhe re dhe gena dha ti gena tina kena


anishraju2011 June 17, 2011 at 10:50 pm

thank u ustad


ThatIsTheWhatIs July 28, 2011 at 2:57 pm

@whyeatedpies Teentaal is the most popular tabla rhythm cycle. All the pieces Zakirji is demonstrating here are based on teentaal.
It is 16 beats long, divided into 4 segments of 4 beats each.

Dha Dhin Dhin Dha | Dha Dhin Dhin Dha | Dha Thin Thin Tha | Tha Dhin Dhin Dha

The harmonium player is helping keep track of the rhythm cycle by repeatedly playing a tune exactly 16 beats in duration.

Zakir ji plays a couple of cycles of Teentaal at 1:41
