Course Summary

Students who have acquired the basic flair of Rabindrasangeet can now upgrade to the intermediate level. In this course, students will learn more complex styles in Rabindrasangeet that are based on different genres such as Khayal, Kirtan, Tappa, Dhrupad, Dhamar, and Baul. 

The students will learn how the delivery of the song differs with each of these genres. For example -

  • Songs in Khayal style are based on different raag and more difficult taal. 

  • Songs in Kirtan style are sung with akhar and repetitions.

  • Songs in Tappa style are influenced by Nidhu- babu’s tappa and Punjabi Shouri Mian’s Tappa. It has a unique style of singing with more vibration in voice. Tappa in Rabindra Sangeet is mostly sung without any rhythm.

  • Songs in Dhrupad and Dhamar style are rich in spirituality. They follow the authentic techniques in their pure classical form.

  • Songs based on Baul style are influenced by the folk music of Bengal.

Factoid

For more than a century, Rabindra Sangeet has been an important part of Bengali culture. The style was widely admired, so much that even Swami Vivekananda was moved by it. Later, he composed music in Rabindra Sangeet style, like Gaganer Thale in Raga Jaijaivanti.
