The Music Room Episode 3 – Tala Part 1 Supplement

This video is a supplement to the third episode of  The Music Room: When East Meets West, in which David Murphy explained the concept of Tala. This is part of a short online film series exploring dialogues between classical Indian and Western music in the lead up to Ravi Shankar’s only opera Sukanya supported by the Bagri Foundation. Here, the wonderful tabla player Raj Kumar Misra demonstrates the spoken syllables of the 16 beat cycle known as Teen Taal.
