Moving my blog over to

Dear friends,

With the recent update of my website, I now have the ability to integrate the blog directly into the website, so that is what I am doing; it just makes sense. I will no longer be posting updates here. Thank you to all of you for your interest in my musical adventures. Please click along to my website for the continuation of this blog in the future! If you would like to update your RSS subscription, this is the new RSS URL:

I hope to see you over at!

Update #2 - TAAL - The Rhythm of Life Documentary Film Fundraiser

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!

New Video from the TAAL Documentary Film Project

Dear friends,

Here is a new video clip from filmmaker Caroline Tabah's TAAL - The Rhythm of Life documentary film project fundraiser. I hope you enjoy it! Please visit the TAAL fundraising campaign website. The project truly needs your help in order to succeed, so please do consider making a contribution. Every bit helps enormously!
