Hi all,

I was just watching a video trying to learn the basic choutal theka for pakhawaj, it all mase sense, but i'm just seeking clarification if the 'di' and the 'na' on the gadigena phrase were pretty much the same. That's how P. Hollenbeck plays it here.


are they the same stroke, di and na for pakhwaj? please clarify, thanks.

No, dhi and na or ne as it is pronounced, are not the same. Dhi is open and ne is closed. Na or Nan is different stroke all together, like tabla Na.

But, you're right Hollenbeck is playing them both open.

Hrm so di is four finger open on syahi and ne is four finger close on syahi? Exactly how far do the fingers go on the syahi when playing 'ne'? to the center or further up? Thanks for the clarification.

Dhi or Dhin is four fingers open and Ne is last three fingers on shayee. I don't know if you've seen any of Joerg Lambbuji Kaufmann's YouTube demonstrations of strokes....and I don't know if he demonstrates these particular 2 sounds...but worth looking into if you haven't already. He's located in Switzerland. I'm in Orange County by the way, and if I'm not mistaken your in San Diego area.
