It was great for us to watch Mehboob Ji on-line in a wonderful performance on 12 June, playing sitar, then singing and then playing sitar again and this, after such a long time of lockdown, was an enthralling performance... and its beginning was marked beautifully by the sounds of a wild bird in full throat (maybe a warbler) singing – a fitting start to Mehboob Ji's concert we feel.

MEHBOOB JI'S PROGRAMME:-

Raag Gungi Kauns (composed by Pandit Arvind Parakh, combining raags Malgunji and Malkauns)

Alap, jor and a composition in Jhaptaal and Teentaal.

Raag Khamaj

Sitar and vocals in Teentaal.

Ashmolean's One World Event on

"Tabla solo in Rupaktaal and Hindu chant"

 

Caroline Tapp has taught tabla in Oxford for many years. She is a disciple of the Benares tabla gharana – style of playing – which is now headed by her Guruji's son Pandit Sanju Sahai, who is the 6th generation from the founder Ram Sahai.

 

Neil Kensit, who accompanies Caroline on harmonium and also sings, has collaborated with Caroline for a number of musical events. Last year at the One World festival they presented various forms of Indian singing and tabla accompaniment, as

well as an introduction to solo tabla, and ended the session with a workshop in which people tried out tablas for themselves. This year they present a tabla solo in 7 beats and a chant accompanied by the kanjira - a south Indian drum.
