Kattar & Kattar jhala definitions

Postby jaysitar22 » Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:21 pm

Hey there,

I picked up a book called "Sangeet Bhashay" or "Terminology of Musical Terms" by the same author of "Techniques of Sitar" (Shripad Bandyopadhyaya.) I thought it was in English but it is in Hindi can anyone please, please, please translate these entries.

I just got an IPhone and am still trying to figure it out, so hopefully the link works properly.

Thanks!

Here's a quick translation..

First extract:

'Kattar is a type of activity that results when the 'kat' bol in the tabla or mridang is used in combination with other bols in a special way. The bol combinations can be kat, tita kat, tita kat kat, tita-kat, kat titakat, kat titakat kat, kat ka tita, kat kar kat tit, takita takita kat, kat, tita kat, kat kat etc

Second extract:

Jhala in the kattar style on Veena(been), sursinghar and surbahar etc style of instruments...

Tarparan

Tarparan is the last of the 10 principal sections of Veena playing style. In this section the rabab player produces mridang bols in place of jhala at the end of which the mridang player repeats the same bols at the same laya. This practice is tarparan. Example
Titatita Tidhatita Kridhatita Dhagetete Tagetete Kridhatita Dhitadhita Titatita Dhagetita Tagetita Kridhatita Dhagetita Kridha-na Dha—na, Dha- Dha-kat- Dha-kat- Dhakridhana Dha—na, Dha- Dha-kat- Dha-kat- Dha- Kridha-na Dha-kat- Dha-kat-
