With a week to go until Guru Poornima 2009, preparations are in full swing at Rhythm Riders. This year is a very special Gurupoornima as we celebrate Tabla Guru Pandit Divyang Vakil or Guruji’s 30th year of teaching excellence. Students, family and friends are all excited and looking forward to what always is a great program.
Some things to look forward to this year:
- Pure Gharana Solos: It has become a rarity to hear tabla solos that are purely comprised of compositions from one gharana. This year Rhythm Riders’ senior artists will be performing pure gharanas solos of Delhi, Ajrada and Punjab Gharana (the gharanas that Pandit Divyang Vakil received his taleem in). In addition, there will also be a solo showing the tabla composer side of Guruji as it features his tabla compositions.
- Tabla Solos by the faculty from the Taalim School of Indian Music
and much more.
Let the countdown begin to the largest music Guru Purnima program in Gujarat.
