Rimpa Siva

You'll find a video excerpt (08:18) 15,2MB, of a tabla recital, given in Berlin, by Rimpa Siva, a very young and talented tabla player from Calcutta. I think the video was shot in 2002 while she was barely sixteen years old.

She mainly learned from her father Swapan Siva, pupîl of late Karamatullah Khan of Farukhabad Gharana.
The harmonium accompaniment is by Sankha Chaterjee, a well-known tabla player from Calcutta.

That DVD has been produced by Franco Rivoira, the italian gentleman who made that excellent DVD of Shaheed Parvez. Its selling price is 25€ - postal charges extra. You may send a mail to the publisher to order it.
