TABLA Ustad TAFOO KHAN

The first 20 minutes is a long interview (but not in English unfortunately) and the rest (40 minutes) is a tabla solo concert. Various bits and pieces have appeared on yutube before but this seems the more complete footage.

I should add, however that quite apart from that, U. Tafoo Khan's musical talent extend beyond tabla. In various short youtube clips, I've seen him play very convincingly the piano, the harmonium, the guitar, the xylophone, and even just a plain table top with his finger nails!
