Mr Naimpalli received his training from one of the great educators of tabla, Pandit Taranath Rao. Taranathjis analysis of the repertoire of tabla was based in logic and practicality and this approach is clearly evident in Sadanand Naimpailis video. Sadanand is one of the finest maestros of tabla. The DVD covers in detail both theory and practice. This is required reading and viewing for anyone wanting to learn to play tabla.
