Tablapusher on KPFK Radio Los Angeles (90.7 FM) - SWANA Regional Radio with Sejal Patel by tablapusher published on 2013/09/18 06:24:00 +0000 In this interview for LA's KPFK Radio's SWANA Radio Intifada on September 13, 2013, I share how tabla, its language, grammar and phrasing power Hindustani classical music. Specifically, we look at Abida Parveen and Maestro Ali Akbar Khan's recordings from the lens of tabla. The set closes out with a look at the cycle of Rupak, 7 beats, as featured on the PremaSoul track of the same name (featuring Sheela Bringi on Harp and Clinton Patterson on Rhodes Piano). I thank all my tabla teachers past and present for helping me channel this knowledge: most important, my tabla Guru, Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, Tim Witter, Randy Gloss, and Debasish Chaudhuri, Sankar Prosad Chowdhury, and my dad Rajen Sukhadia Thank You! The SWANA (South and West Asia and North Africa)Collective presents a weekly review of politics and culture featuring the voices of the voiceless from Kolkata to Casablanca.
