Sing it like: terki- tah- tah- terki- tah- tah- terki- tah-

To me, tabla is a language and as such i try to speak it with all the inflection and emphasis that I use in native everyday language, and I try to reflect that in the way in which I play what I speak..not always successfully, but that is the intention.

Hard to tell someone is joking in text form, but glad to hear it! My comment has nothing to do with the way "I" do it, but rather how Tabla is most often and properly taught to be inseparable from the vocals. It's rare you would find someone taught by an accomplished teacher who can't say what they play. Anyhow, without deviating from the original topic, It always pays to recite; and since you can do it just about anywhere there is always time for practice.

My teacher always insisted from the beginning that I should recite everything.
In my opinion it does help if I start recite when it is a new thing, so I naturally take it very slowly. Then when speedin' up even the recite will come out better.
I've noticed that my teacher often slightly change the pronunciation (expecially the vowels) of the recite depending on the speed.
I'm guilty of not always recite everything when I practice, but I do recite a lot...while driving (a good place to practice!).

A light joke...maybe that will be read instead of making comments that serve no purpose? neogeotoo clearly stated he was joking, mocking Maharaj's looks and style of play seems rather silly, and seems to me contradictory of your stance...also there were LOADS of TiTe in the video...and some of the best tabla maters I have heard, make rare use of TiTe and TiraKiTe. =D

So here is a challenge, find a Real Tabla Master who would tell you that Kishan Maharaj wasn't a master... xD

his students...
Quote:
Maharaj's disciples include Pandit Nandan Mehta, Sukhvinder Singh Namdhari, Pandit Kumar Bose, Vineet Vyas (Toronto), Sandeep Das, Balkrishna Iyer, Shubh Maharaj, Pandit Pooran Maharaj (son), Anand "Maharaj" Lahiri, Arvind Kumar "Azad", Ranesh Mishra, Shashi Bellare.
