Tal Ashta Mangal/Trital – Bombay 1967

Sadanand Naimpalli & Pandit Taranath

1. TAL ASHTA MANGAL – On the very same day that the tabla duet on CE 01 was recorded, Sadanand played a solo in Tal Astha Mangal of 11 beats with his Guru Pandit Taranath playing the lehra on harmonium.
2. TRITAL – In this recording Pandit Taranath is leading Sadanand in playing some very rare and exclusive tihais and chakradars starting from all the odd places in the rhytmic cycle.

Here is a brand new and very good artist profile on Sadanand.

On december 10, 2010, 43 years after this recording, Pandit Sadanand Naimpalli has become one of the handful tabla players to be rated as “Top Grade Artist” by the All India Radio. He played a concert at Södra Teatern in Stockholm together with Pandit Nityanand Haldipur, the fabulous flute player.
