Paran, Gat, Mukhra, Tukra, Peshkar

Postby Rageshri » Fri Aug 26, 2016 1:10 pm

I am a student of tabla from Pakistan. Professionally, a journalist/writer. I am 47 now. I started learning tabla formally 11 years ago. Unfortunately, the professionals in Pakistan have very limited knowledge of tabla with no academic background. Moreover, they are miser in sharing knowledge. They don't teach even to their children. I asked every tabla player in Pakistan some definitions and all of them failed. The question relates to concrete definitions of some terms in such a lucid way that a tabla student could distinguish between:

Gat
Paran
Peshkar
Tukra
Mohra
Gat Tora
and other terms.

There are no convincing definitions of these terms on internet. Can anyone help??
