The Toronto Tabla Ensemble (TTE) has released another exciting single titled Sare Nau, written in a rare rhythmic cycle of nine-and-a-half beats. The piece was composed by the Ensemble’s artistic director Ritesh Das and features an energetic layering of rhythms from the tabla, mridangam, ghatam, and drum kit.
Sare Nau is the first collaboration between the TTE and drummer Nilan Chaudhuri, who transcribed the entire composition from the language of tabla to perform it on the drum kit. Chaudhuri is also an accomplished tabla player and the son of legendary tabla maestro, Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri. His background and mastery of both instruments has allowed him to provide a unique presence and sound on the track.
