16 Pearls



The compostions, several in rare Raga-s have been stringed together so that each one starts from the next beat in 16-beat Teen Taal. Dr. Ragini Trivedi prepared this demonstration to stress a point in her Seminar presentation on Bandishes held at Bhatkhande Music (Deemed) University, Lucknow. Played in a single stretch the performance was a challenge as the artiste had to choose Raga-s that would not force a change of frets on Sitar.
