Tabla Course India
Courses of Tabla at the Vedaguru Centre in Kerala
The tabla has an interesting construction. The dayan (right hand drum) is almost always made of wood. The diameter at the membrane may run from just under five inches to over six inches. The bayan (left hand drum) may be made of iron, aluminium, copper, steel, or clay; yet brass with a nickel or chrome plate is the most common material. Undoubtedly the most striking characteristic of the tabla is the large black spot on each of the playing surfaces. These black spots are a mixture of gum, soot, and iron filings. Their function is to create the bell-like timbre that is characteristic of the instrument.
The healing properties of sound and music
The music provides a person with psychological blocks and energy imbalances the ability to perceive and express their emotions, to show or communicate their feelings or moods through non-verbal language .
“Drum Scan that the heartbeat of Mother Earth constantly reminds us who put us in the world. The pace of the union, pulsation of fire, a perfect reflection of our deepest desire.”
Percussion instruments bring us back in time when men, together with the tools of everyday life, built sound objects to contact the invisible world, to celebrate the divinity, to animate rituals and festivities, to propitiate rain, crops, healing, and to accompany songs light dances.
That is the origin of what we now call music.
