Tabla recital by Sanjay Mukherjee

Saturday evening we witnessed a powerful tabla recital, supported by the sitar, by Pt. Sanjay Mukherjee showcasing various styles of tabla playing.
He is one of the most well versed musicologist and great teacher on the subject belonging to the Farukhabad Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music.
He went through different complex tabla rhythms which only connoisseurs can name. Even poetry could be recited by playing the tabla… as he commented, the fingers need to sprout vigour and emotions with supreme artistry.
Tabla and sitar blended together very well. They concluded with a jugalbandi on tabla and sitar much to the taste of the public.
The evening was organised by ARPANAA.
Thank you so much Geeta, Creativity & Mona, Yantra for this wonderful evening.

One of the chief functions of the physical mind is to doubt. If you listen to it, it will always find thousand reasons for doubting. But you must know that the physical mind is working in ignorance and full of falsehoods.
