Tabla – taught by Kousic Sen

Tabla classes are taught by musical maestro Kousic Sen.  He was born into a musical family in Calcutta, showing tremendous talent for Tabla from a very young age. Trained under his father, Late P.L.Sen, then Pt. Biswanath Bose of the Banaras Gharana, and later under Pt. Kumar Bose, Kousic is a vastly experienced tabla artist, and a master of accompanying dance, fusion and classical music. One of the foremost tabla players of his generations, Kousic Sen is a tabla player whose intense and energetic performances add a new dimension to the traditional concert experience. His rhythmic mastery has become known around the globe through his performances with leading musicians in many of the world’s most famous venues.

Kousic joined Milapfest as Artist in Residence in 2014. His role includes teaching at the weekly Arts School, performances in Milapfest concerts around the UK and his role as Percussion Conductor for Samyo and Tarang.

There are three Tabla sessions ranging from beginner to Grade 1.   Training occurs in small groups, giving each student an opportunity to receive focused one-to-one training with Kousic Sen during each class.   Both practical and theoretical aspects of Tabla are covered in this class.
