Hi all,
I am teaching a short workshop this week to some hIgh School music students about Indian rhythm. To demonstrate Indian rhythmic mastery, I am playing some complex tabla solos & duets (on CD--not playing them myself!), and I would like to be able to tell my students the details of the talas being used. However, these talas seem somewhat obscure, and I have not been able to find their vibhag-divisions, their kali/tali patterns, or their individual thekas anywhere online. If anyone here knows the info for these Talas, I would be greatly appreciative:

Matta Taal (9 beats)
Jai taal (13 beats)

Again, if anyone knows:
vibhag division
kali/tali pattern
or
thekas

for those two talas and could share, I would be so appreciative.
