Rupak Taal on Tabla तबले की रूपक ताल ७ मात्रा

Rupak taal is played on tabla. This taal is of 7 beats per cycle or say seven matras per round. Special type songs , bhajans are played on this taal. Some old songs are played in this taal. Now a days no major work is created in this taal. This taal has 3 parts of three-two-two matras or beats.

On first beat or matra there is a taali (Clap) and at 4th and 6th matra or beat taali is shown. The notation of the taal is written according to Bhatkhande Swarlipi Method.
Theka of Rupak taal is like this:-
