Tabla Apprenticeship (2022)

About the Film

This film captures the special relationship between world renown tabla player Sandeep Das and his young apprentice to whom he is passing on this ancient music tradition. Using methods and lessons taught to him by his mentor in Benares India, Sandeep makes them relevant to a gifted South Asian boy growing up in Massachusetts, who is remarkably well suited to receive Sandeep's mentoring.
