SOME OF THE LEGENDS IN VOCAL AND INSTRUMENTAL CLASSICAL MUSIC WILL PERFORM AT THIS EVENT!!!! PLEASE DO NOT MISS!!!
My name is Tejas Tope'. I am thirteen years old and live on Long Island, NY. Since I was five years old, I have had the honor and privilege of learning Tabla from my Guru, Pt. Samir Chatterjee. I would like to dedicate this album, Guru-Arpita, to my Guruji as a token of my affection, respect, and gratitude. The album is a compilation of my selected compositions as they occurred to me over the past year. Fifty-six compositions are presented in structured Tabla Solo format in six taals (rhythmic cycles), consisting of five Uthans, one Peshkar, ten Quayedas, three Relas, two Gats, twenty-five Tukras, and ten Chakradhars. Click here for Booklet of Tejas Tope's Compositions which accompanies the CD and contains the compositions. I hope that you will listen to all the taals and send me your blessings and comments by visiting my website at www.tejastope.com and signing my guest book. I shall be donating a part of the proceeds to charities dedicated to serve under-privileged children across the world. I would like to thank my parents for their encouragement and support, and everyone who helped me in recording and presenting this CD to you. Sincerely, Tejas Tope.
