Laya Lahiri : Khanda Chapu And Mishra Chapu Talas

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

This week Suri discusses the two chapu talas, Khanda Chapu and Mishra Chapu with appropriate konnakol and mridangam demonstrations.

We hope to meet you with a new topic 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.
