TablaMike - Video #8 (Dhita in the Snow)

Don't let his bit of silliness fool you ... he's a terrific tabla player ...



I don't know how he can play outside in winter with snow everywhere ... when my hands are even just a little bit chilled I can hardly play at all (at which point you say ... how is that different than any other time!!? ... ha ha ha ...)

I believe Tablamike teaches tabla at the Taalim school headed by Pandit Divyang Vakil. Their youtube channel is at ...

There are many interesting videos from various students, but one especially noteworthy one is a 13 year old student by the name of Archit ...



and part 2 is even more spectacular!

Tablamike is up to video #11 - the phone call ...



video 9 and 10 are worth having a look - especially #9 as it features a kathak dancer as well!

The phone call is an amusing little "skit" - ala Zakir Hussain sort of thing....

The second half of "the phone call" - starting around 4 minutes - is my favorite part.

the 13 yr old has some real potential!

I like the Student of the Month videos - interesting to see people at different levels
