Veteran maestro Shankar Ghosh (* 1935) is an internationally acclaimed performer of the Calcutta-Farukhabad-style. The DVD contains the chapters introduction, kaida, rela, laggi, theka, tukra, gat, chakradar and tuning (75 minutes) plus 47 min of documentary. All bols taught in the DVD are given in writing in the accompanying booklet (84 pages). The various strokes are briefly shown, too. However, for beginners who start tabla from scratch we rather recommend the double DVD "The Magic of Rhythm - Tabla-Tutor 1" by Sajal Karmakar.
