The Flushing Town Hall will present global ambassadors for Indian percussion, the contemporary classical tabla ensemble Talavya, on Friday, January 25, 2019.

The group seamlessly combines traditional and modern sounds and represents Flushing Town Hall’s expansion of its South Asian programs this season, according to a press release.

Created by Indian rhythm maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil, the Indian hand-drum tabla comes to the center stage in the hands of the highly-trained players of Talavya. This high-energy and dynamic percussion ensemble making the centuries-old art form of tabla accessible to all audiences.

Talavya keeps to the spirit of Indian classical art, while expanding its palette and its audience. Each performance moves between rousing peaks and slower, smooth meditative passages that are not usually associated with percussion. It engages the pure sonic energy of Indian traditions, the narrative possibilities of the drum, and the wide-open spaces for improvisation, creativity, and personal expression that Indian arts offer.
