What's your favourite Mukada? I'm thinking of putting
together my very own compositions, but finding it
rather difficult. Any suggestions, ideas or sites or
what you play... please post them.

I have a laggi in Dadra

Dhati Dhati Dhati Dhage dhina gina
Tati Tati Tati Dhage Thina Kina.

Enjoy.

I had to look up "mukhada" (also mukheda) in David Courtney's book - fundamentals of tabla - to remind myself what they are.
Quote:
a very small phrase or composition ending in sam. it may or may not have a tihai
Being so small it's easy to forget they are even there as a seperate entity, "a small embellishment" ending on sam, they often provide an element of surprise - tension - and then relief (or resolution) at the end of theka cycle .

Parenthetically, this sense of tension and release is often evident amongst audience members at concert who are knowledgeable enough to stay with the count with their hand and fingers. I remember when I first started going to concerts that I could not figure out what these people were on about that gesturing frantically like that during a concert! But now I have learned to gesture frantically like the best of them! (this may well be entirely lost on anyone here who has never yet been to a live concert, be it a tabla so or tabla accompaniment).

At any rate it's hard to imagine that a mukhada being so small might even include its own tihai! Here are 2 of them, one from David's book - FOCUS OF KAIDAS OF TABLA - PAGE 24 and one from FUNDAMENTALS OF TABLA chapter 3 - elementary material - page 59).

dha dhin dhin dha | dha dhin dhin dha |
dha tin tin Na | {dhadha} {tita} {dhadha} {tunNa} | DHA!!


dha dhin dhin dha | dha dhin dhin dha |
dha tin tin Na | {TaTa} {tirakia} {dhadha} {tirakita} | DHA!!

But don't forget that this very itself has some examples of mukhadas:

Can't wait to see what comes up and try them out!

ooops ... that pesky subject line does say dadra .... well back to the drawing board!

Here are 2 laggies for dadra:

http://www.hinduexpressions.com/2012/03/dadra-on-tabla.html

Here is a one variation on a laggi in dadra from Aloke Dutta's book TABLA: LESSONS AND PRACTICE page 167

tu na dha ti | dha na tu na | ta ti ta na
tu na dha ti | dha na na {kete | taka thaka tere kete}

"tha" = strike the gab with all 4 fingers, pronounced ta

I am *assuming* that the parenthetical material could be viewed as mukhada due to the sudden density of the bols right before sam

Can anyone verify this with a bit more authority that I can muster?

I especially like the second one in part because it uses some phrases that one sees all the time is various kaidas!
