This is an excerpt from the Tarz Group performance at the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in February of 2012. This is a rhythm segment composed by Yousuf Kerai. The musicians are Yousuf Kerai (stage left) on tabla, Zoeb Hussain (stage right) on tabla and Mohd. Siraj (center) on Dholak. The composition is in an 8-beat cycle called Keherwa and has rhythmic phrases that demonstrate the various grooves that can be generated within the cycle. The piece ends with a Thihai, which is a rhythmic phrase repeated three times and designed to land perfectly on the downbeat (the first beat of the cycle).
