Three pieces of instrumental Hindustani music. The first work is for solo tabla and is the Teental rhythm (a cycle of 16 beats). The second piece is a Raga for sarangi and tabla and is also in the Teental rhythm. The third work is also for sarangi and tabla and is in the Deepchandi rhythm (a cycle of 14 beats). It is a Thumri, which means it is in a light classical mode. The basic melody for this piece is the Raga Khamaj, while the term “misra” indicates that all 12 notes are used by the performer.
