"Whichever art form you study or enjoy and like, then learn it or follow it with a lot of love. If you love something it will love you back, gaana bajana pyaar se hi hota hai, if love is not in your heart it won't be in your hands or voice. " - Ustad Alla Rakha
Rhythm Shala is a school dedicated to Indian Rhythm. The school offers courses to learn two of the most popular drums in India namely the North - Indian Tabla and the South - Indian Mridangam
Tabla is one of the most sophisticated drums in the world. The two piece drum set consists of metal bass drum called the Dagga and a wooden treble drum called the Tabla.
Tabla is the most famous percussion instrument of North India. It is most commonly used in North Indian classical music, but its versatility in all musical styles has enabled it to become one of the most popular percussion instrument not just in India but around the world. The level of sophistication and tonal beauty it possesses has elevated the instrument to an unmatched status in the world of percussion.
Mridangam is one of the oldest drums in the world. It is a double-sided drum whose body is usually made using a hollowed piece of jackfruit wood about an inch thick. The Mridangam is most widely used in Carnatic music performances. The techniques developed over thousands of years enable a musician to use the Mridangam as a medium to express complex rhythmic structures with ease.
