Uccitikā (उच्चितिका) refers to one of the eighteen jātis: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “the playing which includes all the mārgas connected in an imperceptible chain, is called uccitikā-jāti. This jāti includes syllables like kentakennāṅgaditāṃ and is to be applied in the natural movement of kings”.(Source): Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
