Performance Practice and Rhythm in Hindustānī Music
This chapter discusses performance practice and rhythm in Hindustani music. The second section of this chapter deals with the rhythmic organization of unmetred (anibaddh) forms such as ālāp and jor. The last section introduces general issues of performance practice in nibaddh forms which are amplified in the succeeding chapters. The bandiś is the key to the nibaddh section of a rāg performance. This fixed composition is generally stated as soon as the tāl is introduced. All nibaddh music is accompanied by drums.
