Post #5 2018–Peshkar Transcription

I was mesmerized by this Peshkar by a Guru (Pandit Shyamal Bose) of my Guru (Pandit Samir Chatterjee) and Pandit Shankar Ghosh and wanted to be able to play this type of Peshkar. So, I decided to transcribe most of the cycles (left out one cycle after #13 and two cycles after #16).

Peshkar
Vlambit Laya (30-50 BPM)

From the recording: Historical Tabla Duet: Pandit Shankar Ghosh & Pandit Shyamal Bose (Chhandayan) (click link to for CD); Track #3

Here is the transcription of bols with the lahara melody at the end:

I added some additional markings such as underlining and arrows at the top for some bayan modulation particulars.

Here is the video of my performance (I recommend opening the PDF of the transcription in a new window, and resizing both windows so you can see half-and-half the transcription and the video):
