Tabla is the Maharaja of all the musical instruments with a royal background. A percussion instrument originating from the Indian subcontinent, consisting of a pair of drums, used in traditional, classical, popular and folk music. It has been a particularly important instrument in Hindustani classical music since the 18th century. Tabla becomes the base instrument for Indian Classical Music as it is the rhythm for any Shastriya (Classical) or Sugam (Light Classical) form of singing.
Tabla is taught by Guru Achinta Chatterjee. He is a master in Banaras and Farukkhabad Gharana of Tabla Vadan.
