I have a CD 'In Concert' by Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasiya, in which the description of the second track says Raga Vachaspati; Gat in Teental and Hori.

By what I know I was assuming that Hori is a type of composition in Hindustani music (like khayal and dhrupad), usually sung in festive mood. But that description does not fit this place I just mentioned. Please help me in clarifying if Hori is also a type of tala?

I would really appreciate if someone can help me in clarifying these basic concepts.

Thanks
Sankalp

I just commented the other day to a friend with regard to the fact that every 'hobby' has it's own club-ish, secret words. Golf has it's birdies, financial has it's derivitives, cooking has it's blanching, on and on.

Anyway, I happened to be reading a book and came upon this definition of hori:

A light classical composition in Hindustani music, with lyrics describing the festival of Holi (hence the name). Sung in dhamar tal. ( another set of them 'code words..)

HORI is definitely name of a TALA.

It has been recorded in many bengali books on Tappa.

Perhaps the name has been changed later.

Is it the earlier or alternate name of present day DHAMAR?
