Just to get back "on topic" Vijay is the tabla player on Niladri Kumar's Revelation CD and once again I highly recommend it.

Don't really see the relevance of the "hair thing"

From an informal review of Sept. 2000 in http://groups.google.com/group/rec.music.indian.classical

..."Young Niladri Kumar also does a good job with his right hand....
...he also did a good job of baffling a crowd of 1500 on September 10th at
UCLA’s Royce Hall in a Tribute to Allarakha, where he played with Fazal
Qureshi in the first second (second set being Zakir, L. Shankar,
Vinayakram). He introduced himself by saying "I have three idols ? Ravi
Shankar, Zakir Hussain and the person I see in the mirror"....
...if the aforementioned perceptory abilities had been transferred to Niladri
when he sat down upon the stage, perhaps he would have anticipated and
subsequently felt the audience’s additional puzzlement at his apparent
fixation upon his hairdo, which included making sure it flit the right way
when playing a fast taan. He has indeed joined the ranks of those
(principally tabla players) steeped in the fine art (or perhaps science?)
of expertly punctuating tihais with a deft toss of the mane. They seem to
have been growing their hair for this purpose. "
