  • Concept of Teen Taal, a 16-beat rhythmic cycle
  • Practice elemental compositions in teen taal to get students accustomed to the emanating sound and finger movement

About the Teacher: Sunayana’s attraction to rhythm and beats started at an early age when she picked up learning the tabla at the tender age of six. Her mother, a vocalist, has significantly influenced the life of the gifted tabla player. 

Sunayna groomed her tabla playing skills, initially under the guidance of Samar Mitra and later under the renowned tabla exponent, late Pt. Shankar Ghosh of the Farrukhabad Gharana continued training under the guidance of his son tabla maestro Bikram Ghosh. 

Today Sunayana is a renowned female tabla player who has showcased her talent both in India and abroad. Sunayna’s talent is not restricted to just tabla, as she is trained in Kathak and vocals.
