Of the most commonly heard talas in semi-classical music is the bhajani tala. As the name implies, this is almost always heard in bhajans. The framework requires an off-beat pattern for matras 2, 3, 6, and 7. This is what gives this a special feel whenever it is played. Some consider this a unique tala, while others claim it is just another version of Kaherva Tala.
