I have two questions which are as follows:
In the tala theory video you taught us that there are 7 different types of talaam which in conjunction with the different jatis(5) form 7*5= 35 types of talaam in Carnatic music. My question is where does Aditalam fit in this classification of talaams? We were taught the 7 (Dhruva, Matya, Rupaka, Jhampa, Triputa, Atatalam, Ekatalam) talas but there is no mention of the aditalam here. So can you please explain where and how does the Aditalam fit in? You also taught us that each tala is composed of laghu, dhrutam etc like Dhruva tala is a combination of laghu(I), dhrutam (O), laghu(I), laghu(I). So does the aditaalam have any similar breakup or structure or is it just that it has only 8, 16 and 32 aksharas in each abartanaame? Since we are learning korwes in Aditalaam, I thought I should ask you this question maam.
The next question deals with the Sarvalaghu Jathis. Maam could you please explain why they are called Sarvalaghus jathis (as in I want to know the reason behind such a specific nomenclature)? Also these jathis follow 4 counts (its simple) but what talaam do they correspond to?
Eagerly looking forward to your reply maam.
