While playing, please say the surs in your mind also. It is similar to meend but much faster, so instead of going from one note to the next very slowly and continuing the sound, gamak is made by moving your finger up and down over a note as if caressing that note.

Bansuri is such alajkars instrument with which you have to always be in touch. Minimum proper repititions are needed to get you fingers moving and getting set to the instrument.

I have included some videos to demonstrate these, although please note that they are not perfect and I am still working very hard on all the techniques myself. You will see that the sound changes slightly alankaes on the consonant, giving it a different effect each time. If you skip a days practice too its result will be alankarz the next day and you personally would feel the difference.

In short what bracket means.

Rupesh Kumar 10 January at I play the following using gamak: Thank you for this daily practice. We now come to one of the most important and interesting aspect of learning Hindustani Classical music. At first I play using gamak: So always be in touch of this instrument. It also arguably helps with musical creativity in that practicing various Alankaar patterns trains your brain to think musically.


As you get comfortable with the tempo and feel that bbansuri can play the combinations successfully with each note equally spaced from the other, you increase the tempo slightly and repeat the combination.

Prashanth Kumar 8 July at I am sure there is a lot of controversy about this last point, but Alankaar practice is a time tested phenomenon. I demonstrate this in the video below. So what can I do to improve it.??

A murki is a cluster of usually notes played around a main note to make it sound more beautiful. The end result sounds like a complex taan pattern with sharp gamaks. You can print it after you get your copy. It takes some practice both of the instrument and that of the mental mathematics, but it is important that you move away from writing down articulations before you play. The general term “gamak” means ornament and more precisely, it consists of beginning each note from above in a curved, sliding pattern – almost as if you were caressing the hole.

But dont worry over the time stamina will slowly laankars with practice. Flute Vines 5 January at Try writing down the articulation for the patterns listed below.

For best music samples and loops on Indian Flutes visit mangoloops. Your time learning the instrument will increase. What distinguishes murki is that it is played relatively slowly and softly in comparison to khatka and zamzama which are more forceful, however it will be played faster than the main notes. If you were to play Ni and then Sa normally, there would be a short gap between the notes and the notes would sound separate.


Just like with weight training, you start with simple Alankaar combinations in slow tempo. Keshav Jha 13 March at In the laankars below, I demonstrate this by playing Ni and touch on the periphery of SA.


It is difficult to produce and requires a lot of practice. Notes in the middle octave are simply represented by the letter itself i.

The idea of tonguing is to make alznkars break in the note you are playing and add texture to your music. Vibrato is a series of very quick changes up and down to the pitch of a note.

Your fingers should glide over the Bansuri. Unlike a khatka, notes in a zamzama are bnsuri in progressive combinations and permutations like very fast ordered note clusters bznsuri taans. You can make your music more interesting by altering the volume, for example by beginning softly by releasing less air and then increasing the air and slowly making a note louder and then making it softer again. Below there are some of the alankars for your fingering practice. By doing this, you touch upon microtones between notes.

There are two parts to an alankar.

Sir if you play Ma in lower octave and then suddenly play higher octave Pa then you phase much less problem and after sometime you will play properly Soham Yoga Studio 12 March at Unknown 30 July at Alankaars are also known as paltas.
