I've not heard of him before. His speed is quite incredible, and reminds me of Ustad Tafo Khan in that regards. Found a little bit of info on him ...
Ustad Faryaad Hussain "Bhulli" Khan


Gharana: Punjab

Teacher: Ustad Ghulam Hussain “Jullundhari”

Ustad Bhulli Khan was an outstanding musician renowned for his tayyari and mastery over the “Ten Finger Style” created by his mentor, Lala Ghulam Hussain. Bhulli Khan won special praise over his ability to play the difficult “Dhire Dhire” bol.

(Speaking for myself, and strictly a matter of taste, but as impressive as his speed is, aesthetically or musically it strikes me as a bit dry, or a bit flat. And I am speaking of this particular selection only, as that is all that I have heard of him.)


My opinion given without any warranties, expressed or implied, that it's even relevant. It would be folly to rely on my opinion without seeking more professional tabla advice. If you are suffering from a tabla condition, seek immediate attention.
