Theka is a conventionally established pattern of bols and vibhag (tali, khali) which define the tal.
This definition is taken from this web site !
That is a theka in tintal, and this is a kaida in tintal,
both of the se are in tintal, which is 16 beats divided by 4. So the tal is the number of beats and its divisions. The theka is the basic way to express the tal.
I hope that helps you out.Rohit
Rohit said....Tal is the number of beats & Divisions
Is Tal definining the structure of time & division?
Is Teka is defining what bol is played within the structure?
That's pretty much it:
Tal is the actual division of time into a certain number of matras (beats), with specifically placed vibhags (subdivisions), and a specific accent pattern (claps and waves).
Theka is the bols that are played to portray the tal in the realm of sound.
That's cleared my head up.
Next QuestionDo you know anything about the 10 rules of tal.
I came across it on some website. Is it necessary to know, if so could some one explain or point me to some literature that would explain it.
