The Language of Rhythm
2 CD box set of drumming from North & South India

For percussion fans, here’s a special treat. Two definitive Indian drumming CDs in an attractive box set at a great price. Trichy Sankaran is one of the most acknowledged drummers from South India. From his mrdangam (double headed barrel drum) and kanjira (lizard skin tambourine) he is able to extract incredible textures and rhythms. Bickram Ghosh hails from a strong lineage of masters of the tabla, the most popular North Indian drums. His fast and clean playing, as well as his knowledge of North Indian rhythms made him a regular accompanist for the famed Ravi Shankar. The set comes with two full-length CDs (Laya Vinyas and Talking Tabla), and a special book with detailed information on the instruments including construction, playing techniques, and evolution of drumming on the Indian subcontinent. (MOW 150)
