For those of you who don't already know, I teach two tabla classes at McGill University. Each semester, the classes perform the repertoire that we've been working on. This coming week, the beginner group will have their first performance. They have only been playing tabla since the first week of September, but have accomplished a great deal in this short time.
We will perform a short tabla soli in Teentaal including mukra, mohara, kaidas, and tukras. The Tabla Ensemble will be accompanied by Andrew Maruzzella on sitar lahara.
