Dear friends,

I am touched and honoured to be part of a documentary film about my tabla Guru, Pandit Sharda Sahai-ji, myself, and the Benares tabla gharana. TAAL - The Rhythm of Life, by Montreal filmmaker Caroline Tabah, will highlight Guruji's enormous contribution to the world of music, and document the musical adventures of this Canadian seeking to find his way in the world of music. The film will include tons of concert footage, and interviews with numerous musicians. While quite a lot of footage has already been captured, an enormous amount of work is yet to be done in order for the film to become a reality. Please visit the TAAL Indiegogo campaign to learn more about the film and to see how you can help contribute to this ambitious project. There are some very special rewards for those who contribute generously, so please do have a look and consider helping out.

There is much more info, and the project trailer video at the TAAL site:

Thank you and best regards,
Shawn

Dear friends, there are only 10 days left to raise the funds needed for this film to be made. Please consider making a small contribution to the fundraiser at http://www.indiegogo.com/taal. Here are some kind words that contributors have written so far:

“Here's the chance to see and hear about the fascinating journey and relationships which are key to expanding musical and geographic boundaries. Indian Classical Music is rich, intricate, and draws from ancient roots. The multi- generational dedication to a musical style, family/gharana is the thread to its continuance. If you dabble in music you may enjoy, if you are a musician, you'll be intrigued and get a glimmer in your eye. When you learn more about this music in depth you'll come to understand the beauty, power and enjoyment of this ancient style which shimmers with intricacies and passion.”

"It's really about the whole tabla tradition, just filtered through Shawn's experience in his particular gharana with his amazing guru, the late Pandit Sharda Sahai. Tabla players are the most advanced drummers on the planet, I'm convinced."

"Keep up the great work in bringing this amazing project to life!"

"Best Wishes for a wonderful and truly worthy project!"

"Taal is the richest rhythmic tradition in the world and well worth supporting."

Many thanks,
Shawn
