Enjoy the best tabla video montage of Soumen Nandy from the Darbar Festival 2019, presented at the Barbican Hall in London. Soumen Nandy is accompanying Pt. Budhaditya Mukherjee, an institution in himself and exponent of the Imdadkhani Gharana of Sitar. He plays two Tukdas (small, ornamental pieces composed of Tabla syllables) in a couple of compositions in Raag Darbari Kanada. Soumen is one of the emerging young Tabla talents from Kolkata, India.
Soumen is seen accompanying Pt. Budhaditya Mukherjee who is playing a Gat (instrumental composition) in Raag Darbari Kanada, a late night Raga, in Madhya Laya (medium tempo) and another one in Drut Laya (fast tempo) in Teentaal (16 beat rhythmic cycle).
Soumen has trained in the Farrukhabad Gharana style under Pt. Pankaj Chatterjee and then under Pt. Arup Chattopadhyay. The Farrukhabad School of Tabla, being one of the oldest and the most prominent Gharanas in North Indian Classical music, dates back to the 11th century.
The first antecedent of this Gharana has been traced back to a Rajput court musician known as Akaasa. However, it was only his 26th descendent, Ustad Haji Vilayat Ali Khan, who gave this school of Tabla, its name – Farrukhabad in the 18th century, which is a moniker shared with the geographical location of residence of the 26 generations of Akaasa’s family.
Farrukhabad is located in the east of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh in Kanpur. The city thrives mainly on agriculture and was founded by Nawab Mohammad Khan Bangash in 1714 and named after the then emperor Farrukhshiyar.
