Taal Smaran to Abbaji by Anuradha Pal
29th April 2019 marks the 100th Birth Anniversary of my Guru, the legendary Tabla Master, Ustad Alla Rakha Khansaheb.
On 23rd Dec 2018, I paid my humble tributes as ‘TAAL SMARAN TO USTAD ALLA RAKHA’, by highlighting some rare compositions of the Punjab Gharana & Abbaji’s multi-faceted genius & versatility, as a World renowned Master, Tabla Soloist & accompanist and a great Music composer in Indian Films.
In ‘TAAL SMARAN TO USTAD ALLA RAKHA BY ANURADHA PAL’, I was joined by 175 Tabla students & 40 Tabla teachers adding up to a staggering 216 Tabla players on one stage!!
As a grand finale, the students joined me in presenting a popular Qayada of Abbaji, which I had taught them on my previous visit to Nagpur during the Kalidas Sammelan in Nov 2018.
This historic event was organised by Sczcc Nagpur India at Suresh Bhat Hall packed to a capacity of 2000 fans!!
