In many forms of world music, composition and rendering is done by two different persons. This is done in 2 ways; 1. First is Aaroh Ascending and second Avroh descending.

In Western Classical music, for example, a piece may have been composed by Bach or Mozart and is rendered on an instrument by Classical instrumentalists. So always be in touch of this instrument. In the video below, I demonstrate this by playing Ni and touch on the periphery of SA.

P, means Pa in the lower octave and notes in higher octave are succeeded with apostrophe i. It is produced on the bansuri in a similar way to the meend technique. In other words, he composes and renders the raga at the same time.

You can also try saying other clusters of letters to ornament your music like: You can then add more complexity to the pattern or work on a new pattern. I have ‘A’ scale flute and I found much more difficulty while playing ‘ma’ to ‘pa’ at a continuous blow or while going from ‘ma’to ‘pa’ continuously.

Convention used in this table is to denote notes in alanksrs octave with a comma i. Prashanth Kumar 8 July at Bansuri is such an instrument with which you have to always be in touch. For this process to work flawlessly, two things are of utmost important: The concept of Alankaars helps certainly with getting command over the instrument.

This ornamentation moves so fast that it seems more like a texture than a line, almost as if you are painting up and down with a paintbrush to make the music sound beautiful.

Keshav Jha 13 March at Just like with weight training, you start with simple Alankaar combinations in slow tempo. We now come to one of the most important and interesting aspect of learning Hindustani Classical music. Try to play the grace notes in the following Alankaar practice exercises remembering to tap your finger bansuti quickly on the notes in brackets: Basically the difference between khatka and zamzama is that khatka only hits notes, whereas Zamzamas continue up and down the scale.

The general term “gamak” means ornament and more precisely, it consists of beginning each note from above in a curved, sliding pattern – almost as if you were caressing the hole. Minimum 30 secs is needed. As you get comfortable with the tempo and feel that you can play the combinations successfully with each note equally spaced from the other, you increase the tempo slightly and repeat the combination. These tables show patterns and their articulation in Kalyan scale.


Vibrato is a series of very quick changes up and down to the pitch of a note. Tushar Yeolekar 27 December at If you skip a days practice too its result will be seen the next day and you alankkars would feel the difference. When you start playing Sa, Re, Ga, ma, Pa, Dha, Ni,Sa Sa, Ni, Dha, Pa, ma, Ga Re, Sa Going from ma to pa is a very difficult task and also it’s a second octave you are entering so blow a bit harder but the technique to go from ma to pa is very simple and when you play sa re ga banxuri going from ga to ma you must place your finger on the pa don’t place your finger after you play ma if you are having problems with few days practice you will be ok.

Since one of the objectives of playing Alankaars rapidly is to train the brain to think the patterns bansuuri, we stop spoon-feeding here and just show the patterns. In the long run it will be very helpful to you. Basic rules of weight training are to start with simple exercises with light weights. Relax and once the dizziness gets over, start again. Thank baneuri for this daily practice. For example, say you have a wonderful musical brain, but no command on the instrument, you are likely to get bogged down in reproduction of ideas, and chances are that your ideas will dry out as your mind gets preoccupied with the reproduction part of it.
