Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the TAAL documentary film fundraiser so far! Your generous contributions are much appreciated! Here is another short video clip for the project. Please considering donating a little something. Every bit helps!
In this clip, I am giving a brief overview of the idea of bol, the vocal syllables of the tabla. It is part of a much larger interview that Caroline did with me in Benares last year. It's a pretty special location, on the bank of the Ganges in Varanasi, on the unpopulated side. If you have been to Benares, you know what I mean... All of Benares is to one side of the Ganges, and there's pretty much nothing at all on the other side. It's a relatively quiet place, though you can hear bits of activity around us, as is the norm in India!
