Tappa singing has complex Taans.

 

Set to 'Punjabi taal' in Raag Khamaj with the lyric - 'Bhanda ve Mehboob Piyara', the lyrics are sung in irregular speed and pronunciation.

 

This style of Tappa singing is a specialty of Gwalior gharana, with its beautification with Geetkari, Khatka, Mukri and Harkat

Shashwati Mandal is a fine exponent of the Gwalior style.

Enjoy her rendition of this classic.

She is accompanied on Harmonium by Paromita Mukherjee, on Tabla by Prashant Pandav.

Brains Trust  

 Thought Leaders Of The Month - Click, Watch, Share

Brains Trust is a confederacy of thought leaders from the UK and India who tell a story which we record and film.  

This season we present a series of documentaries in which veterans of the battles of 1971 are narrating the events. 


These are part of the larger military history project of “Stories from the battlefield. Each video takes up a specific battle, produced by The  Peninsula Studios.


This brings alive some of the most important battles on the 1971 campaign. It is perhaps the first time that stories from the Army, Navy and the Air Force are being brought together and narrated by officers who commanded squadrons or companies. They drove the tanks, flew jets and helicopters and did hand-to-hand combat.

The series covers the entire spectrum of conflict. It narrates how the 20 Squadron of the Indian Air Force — then based at Pathankot — and commanded by Wing Commander Cecil Parker carried out audacious raids deep inside west Pakistan, including one over Peshawar.


One of his pilots was a naval aviator on an exchange programme with the IAF, who later rose to be the Naval Chief Admiral Arun Prakash. He narrates his experience of the 20 Squadron IAF 1971.

Lt Gen Shammi Mehta dwells on the larger issues of the war, humanism over barbarism, liberation over occupation, democracy over military rule, manoeuver over attrition in his episode of ‘Just and Unjust Wars’. Great commanders like Lt Gen Sagat Singh, Major Gen Ben Gonsalves, Group Capt Chandan Singh and several others we tend forget come to life through these stories.
