Hi Guys

I know this has been discussed on this forum before but as you know Australia’s strict quarantine laws make it very difficult to bring tabla’s into the country. Some are fortunate to get quality sets by purchasing them from visiting artists or by being lucky enough to get through at the airport.

I was wondering if anyone has dealt with some of the shops that sell tabla’s in Melbourne (Sydney does not seem to have any). The ones I could search include the DMS Melbourne Warehouse in Halam.

Does anyone know of any other shops either Sydney or Melbourne?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers

Write a letter to the government asking for permission

Sorry, but I don't know of any shops in Sydney that sell tablas...

Many have tried but to no avail.
I believe Melbourne would be your best bet to source a good quality tabla.
I Believe they have some sort of tabla school there ?

Thanks

I will enquire.

I know its been discussed here before but it is a ridiculous law. We have some great tabla players here and the best artists have toured here. Recently we had Pandit Kumar Bose tour, it was fantastic concert.
