Gopucchā (गोपुच्छा) or Gopucchāyati refers to a one of the three yatis: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “when there is ardha-pāṇi stroke, slow tempo, and the gopucchā-yati, it is called śayyāgata playing. When the singing is given prominence and procedure is dakṣiṇa the playing of atyukta instruments is called śayyāgata”.
