“For an ancient tradition that is currently fragmented and in disrepair, Bhima-Karma Dasa puts forth a delightful, well composed introduction to the Sacred Mrdanga. Stressing the unique position of the drum in history and spiritual practice,this workshop is philosophically rich.Sharing his personal journey into the origins of the art, Bhima-Karma holistically reveals theory, principle, and intention of the culture of Vaisnava Manoharsi devotional lineage. A surprising array of tals are offered, challenging even more experienced players.
Hands on! “Not the speed, but the feeling”. High level of technique is presented from the outset. Expect plenty of personal attention and an abundance of patience. Yes, yes, you WILL be playing simple strokes by the end of the workshop. “
