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 ?

Begum ji

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 Poorvi -
Raag Gujri Todi -

I am giving aad ji 25 points for her answers.

The right answers are :-

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



.................................................................................................

OK, so here's the deal, everybody !!!

Keep 'guessing' - who knows you'll hit the target.

Accumulate your points and be one of the top three. Results will be updated and announced every week.

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?

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?

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

This month we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of SPN. Most of us are familiar with the shabad “Lakh Khushiyan Patshaian” which is frequently sung at happy occasions. It is probably the most...
