    This thread is intended to be both fun and educational in the area of Gurbani Kirtan and Tabla. It does not mean that you depend entirely on me to post the riddles or music pieces for identification with regards to Taal and Raag. Anyone can pose the questions.

    To start with here is the first one:-

    Shabad: Tu data jiyan sabh na ka

    1. Please identify which Taal is being played.
    2. What is the name of the Raag ?

    I don't think the links are hot for the blue letters at the bottom of your post.

    Will check on another browser and let you know.

    Edited by me. No sooner had I logged off of Firefox and onto SPN again with the Safari browser a completely different link shows up with the raag -- which happened suspiciously quickly. And I don't believe in leprechauns. So you must be watching this thread really closely.

    The bayaa?

    Or do you mean tala, rather than taal? If you mean tala, then is it tintal (tritaal)?

    I am going to go for Raag Todi but I really can't understand what he is saying. It could be Raag Purvi. Will have to listen a few times to be certain.

    Looking into links will only give you general knowledge. But identifying a music piece is a different ball-game.

    Happy Hunting!

    Aad Ji,

    The taal is NOT tintaal/teentaal.
    Here's a clue on Taal: It is 12 beats.

    To help you narrow down and decide if it's on Raag Todi or Raag Poorvi,

    here are some clips:

    Raag: Gujri Todi
    Taal: Ek Taal (12 beats - fast speed)

    Begumji,

    Where did you find such beautiful gurbani? Can you tell me the link to download gurbani based on raagas?
    Or is there any CDs available on gurbani based on raagas?

    Also, I just can't start a new topic. Can not find it anywhere. I can only reply. Someone please help. Sorry for using this topic for my problem.

    Hey Gobind Hey Gopal

    Tempted to say that the tala is kaharvha, but could be a medium fast tintal. This is torture! LOL sort of. I am being a good sport and making a fool of myself at the same time.

    Is the raag Bilavaal because of the climbing scale?

    Aad Ji,

    No points will be deducted for wrong answers, but you have 3 chances.
    Answer is NOT raag Bilawal. 2 more chances left within 36 hours limit.

    This is an Instrumental clip of Raag Bilawal:
    http://www.sawf.org/audio/bilawal/rs_alhaiyyabilawal.ram

    Taal : TinTaal
    You are correct on the taal.
    Already earned 50 points for Taal.


    Akaal Sehai,

    I humbly confess to my error. Bilaval does not have any flats or sharps and the raag under investigation does. Will try again.

    Malkauns maybe?
