My tabla has arrived. It is shiny and red.

So far I can - stand on it, get up and down with aid of chair and sometimes without chair (but not gracefully). Once I'm up I'm OK though, I can shimmy do hip stuff, figure 8s, camels etc, and can even do the going down bending my knees going on to toes moves, although that will require practice and experimentation with weight distribution. I can also to little shuffly turns on carpet. Needs lots more practice, but def a 'party trick' that suits me and my style. As it can sit in the living room next to my computer, it will get a lot more practice than my Saiidi 'man-stick' which was been banished to the garden by N!

wheeee

oops

I just accidently bought a tabla. I've been considering dancing on one as my next dance adventure for a while and I had one of those 10% vouchers for ebay. I went for a plain red aluminium one in the end - the mosaic ones are pretty but all that would be lost on stage, I think a plain bright colour is most versitile in terms of venue lighting. Also the plain ones were UK based so lower shipping and no horrible suprise customs bills . . . .
