This site has become sort of a launching pad for all the different things I do. The menus above will take you where you need to go.
'Music' will take you to my Bandcamp page.
'Tabla (blog)' will take you to 52 Kaidas where you can geek out on tabla in the audio, video and textual realms.
'Tabla classes' will take you to the classes part of my blog, or you can just Drop me a line for info.
'Video' will take you to my Youtube channel. I also have a Vimeo account, for higher quality and different embed options.
'Photo & Video for Musicians' will take you to http://www.edediteditededitedit.com where you can see what I do as a photographer/videographer.
'Recording Studio' will take you to info on my studio.
My 'Cycles' film project doesn't fit in the menu, so here: CYCLES !
For concert updates, new recordings, tabla news etc, please fan-up on the Facebook page.
There is a Twitter , if that's your thing...
For tabla repair info, incl how-to videos, please go here. Please note: I don't repair tabla...but I can show you how to tune, pull or rehead your drum. There is a fellow in Toronto doing great reheading work, as well as a good source of heads. Drop me a line for info. Here are 2 photo galleries of interest to tabla players:
Haridas Vhatkar's tabla shop, Mumbai and Tabla reheading w Ravi Jadoonanan.
Need more tabla in your life? Of COURSE you do!
Head over to 52 Kaidas ...
Semi-regular tabla solo recordings.
I teach private classes out of my home studio at Arcadia Artists Co-Op in downtown Toronto.
You must eventually own a set of tabla, however, if you'd like to try a class and see if you like it before you buy your own drums, I have drums you can use. I do not rent tabla at this time.
There are several stores in the GTA that sell good tabla, although I highly recommend that we go together to pick a good set.
Classes are private lessons, 1-on-1. I encourage audio recording of classes, if possible.
