Welcome back to the next episode of 'Laya Lahari'.  

After covering the various nadais in Adi tala, Suri now moves on to discuss various other talas.  This episode, he talks about Rupaka tala and demonstrates it with a sample mridangam clip.  

We will take up another tala in the next episode, do stay tuned!

Laya Lahiri section discusses the fundamentals of rhythm or laya, which forms an integral part of Carnatic music. Vidwan Thillaisthanam R. Suriyanarayanan explains the common and 'must-know' aspects of laya through his mridangam demonstrations. (Explanations in Tamil) This is by no means exhaustive but we hope this would be a good beginner's guide for rasikas to get started with percussion in Carnatic music.
