AllMusic Review by

One for budding Indo-percussionists, this recording identifies several talas and variations. The bols are first voiced, then played on mridangam with tambura and bells. To hear the sounds and get a feel for the phrasing is a pleasure as well as the first step in learning how to play, but as a student of Indian rhythms myself, I'd find pictures of playing techniques far more helpful, and a video better yet.
