Repost from my tabla icon, Salar Nader, who is in concert tonight at The Broad Stage. When I was 6 years old, I was not able to learn to read and write and needed help with a métronome. Later in High School I was not able to learn to play the clarinet (super fun instrument for a teen isn't?) because I was not able to learn to read the sheet music. I practiced outdoor or at school because my father didn't to hear me play music. But when I discovered Salar Nader's music five years ago, it was like I really wanted to play tabla. Five years later tabla is my addiction and Salar Nader is the greatest inspiration I can have. .
A moment from the duet by @shariq_g_tucker and I #Tabla & #drums duet 🙏🏼 Hope you dig it.

Girl Power ! This video features two young girls, Anisa (14) and Aleesa Mahadeo (12), who are dedicated students of music. Not only are they both well rounded tabla players, but they're also skilled dancers, singers and have recently started learning and performing Sitar. I've been fortunate to teach these girls tabla for a few years and in that short time they've grown so much and i couldn't be more proud!
Here they are demonstrating a popular Kaida of the Delhi Gharana, one of my favorites .....check out that focus! :D
