Ramkumar Misra Nov 12, 2003 12:00 a.m.

Hello , Does anyone have any information about a tabla player called Ramkumar Misra? I have a lovely CD with him and the late Gopal Misra Shankar on Veena. His playing has impressed and insired me so much. His strokes are so clear, timing is immaculate and his overall feeling is so elegant and gracious. Any information would be great, or a contact number would be fabulous. Take care all, Steve

I did some basic searching on Google, and came across this small bio:

"Tabla accompaniment is provided by Sri Ramkumar Mishra, grandson of the legendary tabla maestro Late Pandit Anokhelal Mishra of Varanasi (Benares). His training in the traditions of the Benaras Tabla Gharana began when he was just five, under Pandit Chhotelal Mishra. Since then, he has achieved considerable fame as an accompanist with a fine sense of balance and proportion, combined with an attractive crisp tonal quality. " -

Hello, Thanks for having a look. That short piece does describe him well, this being ' a good sense of proportion' and 'crisp'. I am very impressed with this man's tabla playing. So elegant non-showy. Any more info on him would be great. Steve
