: Pt. Tejendra Majumdar, Ravi Albright: "Raag Tilak Komod"

Seattle-based tabla player Ravi Albright accompanies renowned Hindustani musician Pt. Tejendra Majumdar on sarod in this excerpt from a concert filmed at the Eastside Baha’i Center  in Bellevue, Washington.

In Hindustani classical music, a raga refers, in the literal sense, to a certain set of scale tones and melodies which guide the soloist’s improvisations.  Due to the different scale tones used, each raga conveys a different mood or emotion.  Some ragas are associated with particular times of the day, such as dawn, dusk, or afternoon. This raga, Tilak Komod, is known as a night raga.

The word tabla refers both to the pair of drums used in traditional Hindustani music, as well as the higher-pitched drum specifically, with the lower-pitched drum also known as the bayan

This excerpt of music features the teen taal rhythmic cycle, a 16-beat rhythm cycle outlined by the tabla as the soloist plays. By dropping the bass tones out during beats 10-13, the tabla player demonstrates the position within the cycle, helping the soloist stay oriented.
