Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)

Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra

Rāddha (राद्ध) refers to a one of the three varieties of yati: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “when in a performance the yati is samā, the tempo (laya) is quick and there is upari-pāṇi, then it is the rāddha playing (lit. rule). Similarly when the playing of instruments is given prominence and there is upari-pāṇi, samā-yati and the medium tempo, then it is called the rāddha playing (vādya)”.
