Learn to Play > Lesson 3: The Basic Kirtan Beat

The combination non-resonant stroke: "Tuk"

"Tuk" is a non-resonant combination stroke.

"Ki" + "Ti" = "Tuk"

See the animation on the right. Remember Ki? It's played by slapping the big end of the drum with your hand and keeping it there – a non-resonant slap. Remember Ti? Ti is played with the lower three fingers on the the small end of the drum – it's also a non-resonant stroke. So TUK is a combination of Ki plus Ti played at precisely the same time.
