Swaranjali music concert

Flautist Ronu Majumdar and Taufiq Qureshi, on the djembe, played at the annual Swaranjali music festival organised by vocalist Prabhakar Karekar in Dec 2009 at the Nehru Centre in Mumbai. Majumdar, who also learnt music from Pandit Ravi Shankar among others, and Qureshi, son and disciple of tabla maestro Ustad Alla Rakha, have played together in the popular album, A Traveller's Tale before. They played several compositions from the same album. Djembe is an African drum that Qureshi has been experimenting with. "I am trying to bring the tabla rhythms to the djembe. I call the instrument tabl," he said.
