Irish Traditional Music (ITM) has in the last thirty years attracted a lot of tabla players and many selective and progressive musicians in the Irish and related Celtic traditions of music (Breton, Welsh, Cornish, Scots etc) have a high regard and appreciation of ICM and indic folk.

So I trust you wont find it quaint that I would ask such a question here:-

Have any of you successfully accompanied Irish dance music (reels, jigs, hornpipes etc) with tablas?

I was practising a reel with my bansuri the other day and I found that the 8 matra cycle known as JAT (no. 41 on my digi talamala) was just right if I set the tempo quite fast.

I am curious to know what tala or theka you played to a double jig?

My guitarist friend plays the tall-fiddler by tommy emmanuel and I jammed along with tabla.

I played a fast nanatite ostinatio in my right hand and improvised a bit with the baya.

Can you recommend any recordings of tabla used in Irish folk music?

I would be interested in hearing that.

Ole
