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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
