A unique chance to glimpse into the greatest tabla master minds who invented an accompaniment soundscape for the ghazal form of music.
A global sensation and trendsetter, Ustad Tari Khan will demonstrate the unique 6 beat and 8 beat cycles used to accompany ghazal and how he moulded an age old tradition and formed a new sound.
He has accompanied the greatest masters of the ghazal and qawwali form, including Ghulam Ali, Mehdi Hassan and Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Trained in the Punjab gharana (school of music), he was the student of Ustad Miyan Shaukat Hussain. Born in Lahore, Pakistan from a traditional rababi family (musicians who performed in the Golden Temple, the sanctum sanctorum of the Sikh gurdwaras). Khan takes you on a tour of the Punjab style of tabla and mesmerises and demystifies the magical improvised rhythmic patterns he become known for.
