Need help with tabla playing for support chanting of Moola Mantra(Sat Chit Ananda).

Example, Moola Mantra singed by Deva Premal

This peace also has tabla support, but I am not sure what tal (bols) a there.

Please, help to pick the music simple accompaniment.

I think it's some sort of keherwa ... 8 beats ...

The most basic pattern seems to be this ...

dha - dhin - | na dhin - -
ta - tin - | ta tin - -

But it's fairly easy to make it a bit more interesting ... for example:

dha ge dhin - | na dhin - -
ta ke tin - | ta tin - -

You can also play "dhin" on sur, but also play it as "Dhi" = Tu + Ge , and play "Tin" as "Tun" instead ... in fact I think the tabla accompaniment seems to alternate between the two from time to time.



Pascal
p.s. can anyone else please confirm - or disconfirm - I have been know to be wrong on occasion! :roll:

Sounds about right to me, Pascal.
It could also be just
Dha ge na tin na ke din na
But the first na is being missed out to give it a more broken feel or bounce.
Or maybe that's just in one bit.
Anyway you can play whatever you like that fits in 8 beats as long as it sounds good, that's the important bit!

Thanks, I like this variation
dha ge dhin - | na dhin - -
ta ke tin - | ta tin - -

It will be correct if I try to make more strong (even playing ta & thin with closed bayan - +Ka)
accent in this way?

- dha ge dhin | - na dhin -
Om Satchitananda Parabrahma
ta ke tin - | ta tin - -
Purushothama Paramatma
- dha ge dhin | - na dhin -
Sri Bhagavati Sametha
- ta ke tin | - ta tin -
Sri Bhagavate Namaha

dha ge dhin -| na dhin - -
Hari om tat sat
ta ke tin - | ta tin - -
Hari om tat sat
dha ge dhin -| - na dhin -
Hari om tat sat
ta ke tin - | ta tin - -
Hari om tat sat
