I thought it was pretty interesting plus it had a nice insert with a lot of info . I was wondering if it is part of the material from your video since it covers the same
thekas.
The only thing i would have liked is that there could have been lahara accompaniment . I think tabla takes on a different tone when played with lahara and it gives the listener a better feeling of the theka .
Samir Chatterjee has a similar tabla solo CD . Just tabla no other instrument. One thing about both CD's is that the performers cover very traditional standards and so they are both great reference CD's , important references for the Farrukhabad Gharana.
By the way if you want to hear what I think is one of the best recordings of Shankar Ghosh playing with Ali Akbar Khan it is actually available on that http:www.dovesong.com website it is Kirwani and Shankar Ghosh's accompaniment is absolutely fantastic , it's a classic!

The video covers more simple themes. Like first kaida of the video
Dha-gege tetegege tetegena tunnakena
Ta-keke tetekeke tetegena dhinnagena
Rela example from the video would be the same as first rela in Dutta's Poetic drumming :
Dha-tetegherenaga tagatetegherenaga
dha-tetegherenaga dha-tetegherenaga and then khali
This rela is probably familiar to all of you. The video shows the technics very well!!
