I was into Sheila Chandra a while ago. A _while_ ago. At the same
time, I also listened a lot to Najma. I have her on _vinyl_. What
Sheila is doing is what every Indian tabla player does first: learn
to say all the bols (syllables) and then learn how to put the bols
together into tals (rhythmic cycle). A good site if you're
interested in tabla is:
Chandra (different Chandra) and David also have an excellent series
of textbooks on Tabla which are available from the site.
Finally, if you're in the Eugene, Oregon, USA area I can point you to
our tabla player, who holds a BA in Tabla and has been playing since
he was six years old. He may still be taking students.
