In the 'Indian tala and Western Music' thread Aanaddha mentions the Spanish guitar in the context of different musical instruments' evolutions, styles, and traditions.

This is off-topic but there is, believe it or not, a mix of Flamenco and tabla out there! Sounds crazy, but I really like it. The album 'Aras' is over a decade old but considering the sources of inspiration, it remains original, sensitive, and soulful.

'Curandero' showcases the amazing talents of Miguel Espinoza on guitar and Ty Burhoe on tabla. Ty is an amazing guy who has been a disciple of Zakirji for some fifteen years. Oh, and the fantastic Kai Eckhart is on bass!

What do you think?

This hits close to home, because I'm playing just such a project right now in Portland. The group is Colores del Alma. It's challenging, but a lot of fun. I'm also playing doumbek and conga with the project so tabla isn't always featured, but when they are used I think it works remarkably well!

Anyone who's interested can hear some of their music before I came onto the scene by going to http://www.coloresdelalma.net and following the link to their album on CD baby.

the guys in the group gave me an album of flamenco with tabla, but I think it was something different from what's been brought up in the thread so far. So I guess this is nothing new!

"Sounds crazy" Not really. Flamenco has its origins with the Romani people, ie. Gypsies. The Romani are believed to have originated in India. So it comes full circle in flamenco with tabla.

Check out "El Otra Historia De La Flamenco" It's a 2 volume book that gives tons of transcriptions of rhythms, scales, pieces of music, origins, of course tons of historical info too. especially Andalusian gypsies too, since that's a really important place for Flamenco. Flamenco uses to my surprise when readiung this book, I found jhaptal and Dhamartal listed as prominent "real" Flamenco rhythms. Oh well, it's all in the book, a really great one for Flamenco studying purposes.

Thank you guys for the wonderful link: http://www.indialucia.com It is so great the music they play. Check out the track titled Taliquete it is only a percussion composition, where are dialogues between tabla, cajon, ghatam, morsing and konnakol. It owesome!

Tha talba player sounds like Zakir Hussain. He belongs to Farrukhabad gharana, but has a great stroking.

I found already the best price for this album and it cost only 11.95 EUR in the shop http://www.elflamencovive.es

I have already ordered it! I will let you know as soon as I receive it.

John
