Dear Chousy,

This is just the plain drut (fast) ektaal theka (12 beats), that is:

dhin dhin dhage trake tu na kat ta dhage trake dhin na

I think that in the chorus, they switch to a kind of fast, simplified chautal (12 beats also) that sounds like:

dha S dhin S ta S kat ta tite kite gadi gina

At least that's how I play it;-)

Cheers!

Mariano

Thanks - the bol in the chorus is what I was looking for -Can you tell me how you play the tite kite gadi gina ?

Titekite gadigina is a very common bol (or assembled bol) that derives from Pakhawaj.

The first part is a normal tirekite, while the second part would be played as: ge tu ge ne.

The middle tu could be played as the original Di from the pakhawaj, but it's difficult to explain it by words.

The ending "ne" is a simple touch from the ring finger on the space between syahi (black spot) and kinar (edge).

I hope this helps.

Cheers!

Dadra or variations of Dadra( like Garba) are also a normal fit for this Marathi song.

Being 6 beats( at normal speed )
Dha Dhin Naa | Dha Tin Naa
OR
Dha Tin Tin | Tak Dhin Dhin
OR any other 6 beater

OR like a Garba
DhinTaKita | TinTaKita

are also a natural fit.

Its been a long time since I heard this song but if I recollect correctly, its a slow tempo song. Thats why Dadra would be a better choice, in my opinion. Even though Ektaal( 12 beats ) suggested by Swara would work.
Another reason being;
Dadra( at 1x speed , 6 beats) = 1/2 speed Ektaal( 12 beats / 2 )

I guess its also a matter of choice. As long it sounds "fit" to the song, its OK.

This song is based on a poem from Sainth Eknath, so it probably has many varieties. The one I know is sung by Suresh Wadkar and is a quite fast tempo, hence the drut ektaal.

Cheers!
