Handbook of Tabla (History, Anatomy, Learning, Maintenance)
Handbook of Tabla (History, Anatomy, Learning, Maintenance)
Description
Preface
It is often said, “Mobility is life and immobility death”. We can conclude by saying that movement and motion are prime and prominent parts of nature. Look at the Sun, the Moon, the Stars, the Planets, the Milky Way, even the entire universe, everything is in continuous motion. The strange fact about the motion of these heavenly beings is that they are in perfect rhythm. According to this fact we can say that movement in rhythm is in harmony with nature hence nothing is out of its place.

In Music also rhythm is the major aspect on which music is formal altogether. Therefore there is no question about its importance. Without rhythm music cannot exist as it does. Rhythm is said to be the life line of music.

Keeping this in mind we would like to introduce to readers one of the most important instruments of Indian Musical Tradition, the Tabla. This book its reader a sound idea of the history, development and basics of the instrument, to begin with and further facilitates the reader in motivating an interest to know more about this wonderful instrument as one proceeds further.

This book takes proper care of the inquisitiveness of beginners and points out the salient probable problem areas in this fields in a friendly manner. Any suggestion for improvement of this book is welcome.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
