... and now for something completely different ....

Here's a very "groovy" kaida in rupak tal - I say "groovy" because it is at once fairly simple to play but also quite fun and sounds ... well ... just groovy!

Ahhhh Pascal - always keeping the board interesting with new compositions to discuss.

First off I assume 'kat' is like a more pronounced 'ke'.

It does sound nice and 'groovy' - is this the full composition you have posted?

I'm not sure - but to me it sounds more theka like? I don't see kaida structure - I.e where is khali? Tihai? Etc

What do others think?

"kat" is indeed a strong "ke".

According to Jerry Leake, it is a kaida. The theme is in red, and 3 variations are in black.

Rupak tal is unusual in that khali falls on sam. Hence the 3rd line above (and the 3rd line of each variation) is khali.

Pascal
p.s. note that I had to edit the image and the video, since I didn't have proper khali on the very last variation!
