Last week our friend Mike Lukshis came to visit with his tabla drums. These are hand drums used in Hindustani classical music. Mike has been studying with Pandit Divyang Vakil and teaching for the Taalim School of Indian Music for a long time. He decided to make a video with us at the Dacha.
Some of this is us being goofy and most of it is beautiful music made by Mike and our neighbor Matt Ocone, teacher at the CSMA. Check it out (you can see the Dacha’s new wood stove in the background, too).
