Instrumental Music – Tabla – Drums Fusion

Instrumental Music – Tabla – Drums Fusion It is interesting to watch one person playing two instruments at the same time – of course almost impossible. But I came across a video in which the same artist is playing Tabla and Drums at the same time – Thanks to the cinematography techniques. The artist is playing Tabla first then Drums and both in three segments of the video. Interesting and enjoyable. As long as it is music and one enjoys it, anything is good. Enjoy the music.
