Music:
Khayal is several hundred years old. Originating in the courts of the Moghul emperors. Khayal texts draw freely from Hindu and Muslim poetic traditions, and are usually romantic or devotional or a combination of the both. Generally composed in Hindi, Brij Bhasha. Khayal songs are found in languages like, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Urdu, Rajasthani, marathi and occasionnally, in Sanskrit.
Khayal often starts with a song in a very slow rhythmic cicle, perhaps of 10, 12, 14 or 16 Beats--it calls bilambit Khayal. Eventually the singer swiches to a faster song in the same raga, displaying the virtuosity and command over the materials.
