Album Notes
Personal note:

The tabla are the drums from North India, and are an integral part of all facets of classical music and dance. They have immense versatility, and incredible range of sounds, and a vast repertoire. in recent years, they have become more prominent inmany forms of world music. The tabla have been predominantly accompanying percussion instruments, but it has been my vision with this album to bring them to the forefront as a solo instrument, and provide audiences with a chance to experience their beauty, range, repertoire and adaptability. I have studied the art of tabla for the past 20 years, and from my travels in India and Canada, I have been inspired by the interest to audiences to present the elements of a traditional tabla solo recital in a modern format. I am thrilled to offer you samples of the tabla's vast potential and depth, with new and interesting melodic textures.
