In 2011, on the occassion of Ustad Keramatullah Khan's birthday, Shri Gourishankar Karmakar (disciple of Pandit Sankha Chatterjee) performed a tabla solo for his students, with a particular focus on Ustad Keramatullah's compositions as well other traditional Farukhabad compositions. Harmonium accompaniment is provided by Shri Sameer Kotasthane.

I watched it last night. It was a delight. Very appropriately entitled.

He gets the ball rolling with dha dha dhagena.... I believe this had a video glitch. Chaar bhaag kaida immediately after. Dhig dhina.... Very nicely done. I do not know the dhig dhina with chipki, i guess a kermatullah khan saheb special. Etc.etc. relas are nicely done. Tihais are nice and simple. The kaida that included katkatkat khan saheb style is simply amazing. I can not remember how it starts, but this weekend, i will jump right to it.

Was the performed prempted to focus on dhirdhir by the audiance/sponsorer? In the future, consider getiing a mic for the performer.

Thanks for sharing.

I've seen this video a number of times now but he never ceases to amaze me. He is without a doubt in my top 10 favorite tabla players.
