Teen Taal Tukda, Rela & Mohra

Tukra/Tukhda – Like a Mukhra, the Tukhra also ends with a tihai, but this is played later in a performance

Following are some examples

  1. Dha Tirikita Taka Ta Tirikita
    Dha Tirikita Taka TuNa KitaTaka
    Ta Tirikita Taka Ta Tirikita
    Dha Tirikita Taka DhuNa KitaTaka
    (Dha Tirikita Taka DhuNa KitaTaka Dha) X 3

Mohra – The mohra (tail piece) used to reach the Sum (starting point of a bandish) should be specially composed and not a part of a kayda or rela.It should preferably cover not more than one avartan,It should not be a kayda or a chakradhar.Use of pakhawaj notes such as ‘titakatagadigana’are useful

Following are examples (Lines 1 and 2 counts to 16, Tihai also counts to 16)

  1. Tiri kita Taka Tiri kita Taka Dha Ti
    Dha Tirikita Taka Ta Tiri Kita Taka

Rela – Comes from the word “Rail” means fast. A fast rendition of Tabla composition that follows specific, shorter structures
