A fascinating session offering an insight into the rhythmic foundations of Indian classical music presented by two young percussion maestros on drums and tabla.
Indian classical music centres around the concept of sum - the first beat of any cycle.
During this explanation, watch a tabla skin be applied by Biant Singh in 30 mins! And if you are often left wondering what audiences do when they keep time by clapping (tali) then join in with Bernhard and Gurdain who will guide you into demistyfying this tradition.
