RiyazStudio Semi-Classical brings much of the huge variety
of light music taals to your daily practice. You can add it to your existing
RiyazStudio installation or - if you don't use classical taals - install
it on it's own.
It includes over 200 specially recorded variations of Keherwa (encompassing Bhajani, Qawwali and Ghazal theka) Dadra,
Rupak, Addhatal, Deepchandi and
As well as covering a wide range of styles, RiyazStudio Semi-Classical also groups together
similar variations to provide the subtle rhythmic modulations of a real tabla player.
So if you sing or play light music (devotional songs, thumri, ghazals, filmi
songs, dhuns...) it'll make your riyaz a rewarding preparation for performance
with live tabla.
