This is simply divine! One thing I will never understand as to why people dote on calling Tappa, a Semi - Classical genre of Hindustani! Dhrupad & Khayal genres of Classical, yes definitely, but personally I feel Tappas are too. (Thumri's I understand despite their Raag-Based backgrounds deviate on the basis that greater importance is given the Raas/Bhav & YES, the lyrical aspect too, for those who think otherwise)  Shori Miyan a Khayal singer himself fashioned these Punjabi compositions on different Ragas & hold their position as far as Raag Grammar is concerned, not a single one of the Sapats & Zamzamas employed sway away from the basic phrasal structures of Jhinjhoti. It only varies among those of the older & contemporary thoughts. Girija Devi in her Kafi Tappa, clearly enunciates 'Mian Nazarein Nahi Aanda', what complaints most still have I don't know! & For those that seem to take Dhrupad as argument for everything, it's called Shastriya 'SANGEET' for a reason. Over excessive use of Gamaks & rigidity of composition is what led to it becoming second to Khayal. Frankly I've heard some very dear Dhrupadiyas make a absolute mess out of a beautiful Raag like Yaman through those extreme use of Nom-Tom syllables in the Alaap.

+ACleverMonkey I don't mean to sound rude but your conception of Yaman is rather dull, Raag Yaman, employs only Tivra Ma, Raag Yaman Kalyan, employs both Tivra Ma & Shudhda Ma, Raag Kalyan (Kalyani Of The South, often performed by our Dhrupadiyas, does away with the Ni Re Ga phrase itself). I've heard a recording of Kesarbai Kerkar or I think it was Mogubai Kurdikar who even phrased a minute Lalit-Anga of Tivra Ma followed in succession by a Komal Ma. Well Raag perception also depends on the Gharana you or your Guru trained under. Under the Jaipur-Atrauli, you have sets of composition for both Yaman & YamanKalyan, in perfect distinction from the other!

Well I was only talking about Yaman, and all I was trying to tell is, you avoid Sa and Pa in the ascent, dont get me wrong, I like her rendition very very much, also I understand that there are subtle rule differences between gharanas
