Taan and Types :

To improvise and to expand weaving together the notes in a fast tempo is a taan. Taans are very technical and shows the training, practice and dexterity in weaving complicated patterns of the notes with variations in the rhythm. Taans also are sung in Akaar, Ukaar, Makaar, Ekaar, Ookar or using deergamatras. Speed is an important factor of the taan.

Some important types of the Taan :

   •  Bol Taan : Taan can also be sung by utilizing the words of the Cheez (Composition). This is a difficult type of a taan as in this          correct pronunciation, the beauty of the words, meaning of the composition, every thing has to be taken in to consideration.

    •  Shuddha/Sapat (Straight) Taan : The notes are placed in an order in one or more octaves.

    •  Koot Taan : The notes do not remain in order. It's complicated in nature.

    •  Mishra Taan : Combination of the above two taans.

    •  Gamak Taan : Gamak is a technique by which a force is added to notes and each note is repeated atleast twice.
