Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Live - - THANE - Sa­jana Nam­biar

KALYAN: Fifty young stu­dents were wait­ing at the Kalyan Gayan Sa­maj on Fri­day to get train­ing from renowned tabla artiste Suresh Tal­walkar.

The three-day tabla work­shop started on Fri­day with stu­dents from Kalyan, Dom­bivli and Thane.

Pan­dit Tal­walkar en­thralled the stu­dents with his skill and per­for­mance.

The pa r t i c i pa nt s had a mem­o­rable learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I got a chance to learn the art form from the renowned artist. It is like a dream come true when Tal­walkar came to our city to teach us,” said Chai­tanya Vaze, 16, a par­tic­i­pant.

He added: “The work­shop was the ex­pe­ri­ence of a life­time, es­pe­cially from a tabla mas­ter who has ded­i­cated his life to the art form.”

The work­shop saw a com- bi­na­tion of singing, danc­ing and tabla ses­sions. Ten kathak dancers from Kalyan, Dom­bivli and Thane joined the ses­sion.

“This is a rare op­por tu­nity for stu­dents as they usu­ally don’t get to meet such a renowned artiste. We are look­ing for­ward for more par­tic­i­pa­tion from bud­ding tabla artistes,” said Prashant Dan­dekar, a mem­ber Kalyan Gayan Sa­maj.

Dan­dekar said the work­shop was mo­ti­vat­ing as well.

“Such an in­ter­ac­tion with renowned artistes will mo­ti­vate the stu­dents to de­velop their love to­wards the ar t f o r m a n d e xc e l i n i t , ” h e added.
