Hi All,

I Hope everyone is well. Could you please let me know if is acceptable to perform a da/ra/da cominbation on the chikaris ?

I thinking specifically during Jhalla where the stroke is 1 hit of the main string followed by 3 on the chikaris.

Wondering whether the up stroke on the chikaris is OK or whether it should only be downs (which would break the da must follow ra rule..... :? )

Also is this down to a gharana choice or technical etc.

Many thanks,
Carl

I know Indrajit Banerjee teaches that you can play da ra on the chikari although I don't think I've seen many other people using it.

Yes Indrajit teaches that way BUT he can do it just as fast the traditional way so the sense is not to do it as a cop-out but to enhance the interplay between baaj and chikari using similar bols/strokes. A lot of practice is necessary and then sort of a relaxation when trying to apply the technique otherwise you'll get stuck or at least I do but I'm still a beginner. :|

Hi. Hope this helps at this point.

Jhalla is a form commonly included in rag presentation exploring rythmic interaction possibilities of 2 of the sitar 3 string sub-sets.
As such,there are many stroke-variations qualifying as jhalla, though at the start people are given the main one (Xccc), then 2nd, then maybe some etc's of them: practical purposes.

Having said that, I don't think creativity-in-patterns is forbidden, as long it's deemed effective, i.e., people'll always dig something interesting, although they'd come 2 expect innov's mainly from trad, gharana 'stalwarts'.

R-Hand percussive techs R typical of ... PLUCKED-string inst's in 1 form or another.
Have fun.

Carl, my teacher explained the darada concept on the chikaris when I was taking lessons from him in the 70s. He did not use it himself but left the possibility open for me. I experimented with it but did not like the sound. I love the crispness of the dadada sound.
