Making Indian arts accessible to all audiences

This past Saturday, Taalim School brought almost 100 of our students to a waterfall at Treman State Park in Ithaca, NY for #RhythmicFreefall. We spent the afternoon enjoying the peace of the forest and communing with the rhythms of falling water. With hundreds of spectators gathering to experience, we played and spoke tabla rhythms in unison.

This is a re-production of an event from 20 years, conceived and accomplished by our Guruji, Pandit Divyang Vakil.

Taalim School is so grateful to all the students, parents, volunteers, friends, and family who made this event possible. It took a lot of work to get everyone there and home safely, traveling over 4 hours from our home base of NJ/NYC. Watch out for many video clips to emerge in the coming days!

Taalim School of Indian Music is a premier tabla school and Indian performing arts organization guided by Indian music maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil. Our mission is to support, celebrate, teach, and share the music and dance of Northern India with diverse audiences.
