This is a new project I have been working on with a great guitar player, Dusty Brough. Hope you enjoy.
This is a highlight reel of a recent concert I did with guitarist, Juan Moro, in San Diego. The concert was small and intimate with minimal amplification at Paper Moon Guitar Studios. I do not usually like to play tablas on a stand, but sometimes, out of necessity, I do for fusion work purposes. Though I always play with shoes off! Juan is an amazing guitarist I have worked with for the past fews years and a dedicated scholar in both flamenco and linguistics. Moro is a professor of linguistics at UCSD. Enjoy!
Here are some recent clips of a house concert with sitar player, Rahul Neuman. This was the last house concert I hosted in our old house, as we just moved to another place last week! We may host some concerts here, but the space is not as big so we will have to keep them quite small.
This was a small house concert in celebration of the end of our tabla shivir. I wish we had a harmonium player, but the lehra machine had to work. Here is a clip of the Delhi kaida, Dha te te Dha te te. More to come of the sitar portion of the concert, I am editing it right now.
I just played a gig at Ta Blu with Rajasthan Roots and it was a great success! I was only playing drumset (not tabla) on this gig and really enjoying getting back into it. The greatest part was being able to play tihais and other tabla rhythms with the morchang/cartaal percussionist. We had a great time and the audience really enjoyed it. There are more gigs to come with them and maybe a recording. Because of this experience I am now excited of the prospect of playing drumset much more; maybe I will even get more work out of it.
