electronic tabla riyaz master

i am in awe of this little box ever since i saw talvin singh’s last video. weighing in at only 130 euros, this retro-designed music accompaniment takes batteries and allows for tabla tunes anywhere. hear it used during the recording of madonna’s ‘ray of light’ song/video.
