Hi,

Does anyone know the theka of Jai Taal? I haven't been able to find any information on this taal, besides that it is in 13 matras. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone knows any compositions in this taal, even, that would be great. I am attempting to compile a more or less comprehensive documentation of rare and unusual taals of Pakistan and North India, and need as much information as possible.

Also, please feel free to PM me if you know any other thekas of rare taals.(e.g. Chartal-ki-savari, Farodast, etc.)

Thanks!!

Hi,

The Jai Taal Theka in the sound clip below sounded to me like this:

धीं तिरकीट धीं ना तिं तिरकीट धीं ना कत्तिं धागेत्रक धींधींना धींधींना

Dhin tirakita dhin na tin tirakita dhin na kattin dhagetraka dhindhinna dhindhinna

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Vilambit.

Thanks, Vilambit! This information can definitely be put to good use, and thanks a lot for the effort and contribution! However, I don't know if that's the theka... It has some elaborations that are not typically found in thekas or most prakars. From what I can make of your information, it sounds like it's divided 4|4|2|3(assuming that "traka" is played at double speed). My conceptualization of the theka was divided 4|3|2|4 and was played something like this:

Dha Ge Tin Na Dhin Dhin Na TiTeKiTe Dhun Na Ghi Na

This is probably incorrect; please let me know if there are any alternate divisions or bols for this taal.
