TORONTO TABLA ENSEMBLE Swing And Shake With Rhythm-tastic Song ‘ENCORE 21’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

3 January 2022


Who: A non-profit charitable organization founded by
Artistic Director and tabla master, Ritesh Das. The TTE’s
mission is share the depth and excitement of Indian
classical music, culture and history.

Founded in 1991, The Toronto Tabla Ensemble is a performance
company, music school and Canadian institution that promotes
the traditional practice of North Indian Tabla.

New single: ENCORE 21

Second taster from new, upcoming album
‘For the Love of Tabla’ coming in March 2022.

The song features “high velocity tabla and other percussion, along with rapid fire recitation
of tabla bols (language) by TTE founder and composer Ritesh Das, ‘Encore 21’ has the power
to propel anyone into a joyous state of reverie. However, playing this composition requires
a sobering amount of skill and practice.”

Das: “I originally wrote this piece for the Youth Ensemble. A fast-paced and high energy composition to keep their chops up as we slowly emerge from the pandemic and prepare
for in person shows again.”

Anything can happen here at Turn Up The Volume. The first Pick Of The Day of the new year was a hardcore explosion by Pittsburgh force Eternal Sleep and today I make some space for Indian music. Why? Because any genre of music that actives my aural senses is great music to me. It’s that simple.

Swing and shake, folks,
2022 has arrived…
