Brief Introduction to Tabla and Ghatam – Indian Percussion Instruments

Last year at Civic Centre of Carmel in Barcelona and earlier at KulturMusik, Centro aragonés de Etnomusicología (Aragonese Centre of Ethnomusicology) I had been invited to give a talk on Indian Music and evolution of film music as a genre. Several participants asked for a separate presentation on Indian musical instruments. Today, accidently I found this interesting video on Shakira’s Youtube Channel, where two percussionists of Indian origin are talking about Tabla and Ghatam. Hope you like it!

  2. Hello Kandarp,
    I was searching for a tabla player who would like to join me in some devotional kirtan, and ended up here at your blog. I lead a group every Friday in St Pere de Ribes, near Sitges (BCN) We are mostly sing Indian inspired chants, but with a western influence since we’re almost all westerners. My wonderful percussionist has moved away, and I have a bunch of folks who grab a shaker, or a tamborine, but they aren’t very good, and while that isn’t the point of kirtan, it certainly drives me and my guitar player crazy. Do you know anyone who plays well enough and might be interested? We do this for fun, and only get paid when we have a “bolo”. I like the idea of a blog about creativity, and so I think this might be a “creative way” to find a tabla player: Maybe you don’t know one, but you know someone who does! Thanks for taking the time to think about it, and get back to me if you can. Best regards, Shawn McSweeney
