Ottawa: Punjabi Drumming

In Ottawa, dhol players are often relegated to the basement or the garage when they want to practice - at least that's what happened to Inderpal Bal when he took up the Punjabi drum. He's played it for six years, now and performs with a bhangra team. Recently he took his instrument out of the basement and into Club Saw's Chutney n' Chopsticks Cabaret night.

CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning went down to capture the sounds. Listen Audio (runs 2:32)

Our son attended a wedding and has been "smitten" by the Dhol playing. Do you know if anyone in Ottawa teaches this instrument?

Thanks to Inderpal. I love Punjabi drumming & bangra dance. It is one of the famous cultural activities in India.
