A bit of a plug really but I do think some of you may enjoy it. Sometimes it is just nice to let iTablaPro play the tabla.



It is in Punjabi but I have a bit more information for the context here :

Very nicely done! You sing quite well!

I looked around on your blog ... funny stuff! ... interesting idea for your "restaurant" ... too bad you couldn't find the funding for it ... perhaps the "cannibal" part put them off!

(... I like Abida Parween as well ... I quite like her singing Bulleh Shah ... )

Thanks Pascal.
Re the cannibal restaurant, I had even offered to prepare a 'Manager's Special' but they would not budge :-)

That's really too bad ... seeing as that you were so accommodating in your willingness to serve vegan dishes ... (for those who have a taste for vegans!) ...

Beautifully sung !! On a live performance you might sound even better with tabla base ( bayan ) sounds reverberating the auditorium. Keep up your good work!!!

Very nice! I liked how folk is sung in classical. I also have favorite from Manmohan Waris sung in folk style Banera Chete Aa Giya but your classical touch just makes this simple folk amazing. Keep it up and try few from Batalvi if you can...

thanks guys - rch, assingh, tofu_khan.

On a somewhat related note, I like to sing Tabla compositions (a vocal lehra of sorts) while playing in medium-speed. I find the exercise helps me internalize a composition. Not only is this a lot of fun but sometimes it helps me uncover an aspect of a composition that I would have otherwise missed. And I know, for sure, other Tabla players do that. Mostly it is a hit and trial process but I find this match-making between a Tabla composition and a vocal lehera quite aesthetically satisfying. And there is absolutely no need to limit one to a few well-known leheras - I find some folk melodies are a fantastic fit. And there is no reason why one cannot look in other genres - jazz, blues, pop, whatever. Who knows - if a composition breaks your heart in that you want it but it just does not yield - perhaps there is a country music melody that can rope it in.

In the words of one Sanjeev Kapoor: "Lo kallu baat, ise kehte hain composition!"
