All chants of Paramahansa Yogananda that we offer are played in the 8 beat Keherwa Taal (rhythm) except for: Who is in my temple, Thou art my life, No birth no death, I am the sky and I am the bubble which are played in a 6 beat Dadra Taal (rhythm). These rhythms are commonly used in Indian devotional music (bhajans and kirtan). We also have Hymn to Brahma which is played in free"style".
We have two distinct styles of chanting, both played in the Keherwa and Dadra Taal (rhythms) that of Philip DeCardo and Naren Schreiner. This gives you an example of how Paramahansa Yogananda's chants can be played with individual styles within the 8 beat Keherwa and 6 beat Dadra Taals.
If you would like to learn more about Keherwa and Dadra taals (rhythms) and our featured artists please go to our contact page.
