Bradford Mela - Taal Tarang

I'm not really familiar with Indian music or traditional Indian musical instruments but I was really impressed with the performance by Taal Tarang at the Mela. The musicians were R N Prakash on the Mridangam (on the left), RR Prathap on the Ghatam (centre), Sithambaranatham on the Jewish Harp (right) and Bernhard Taalis on a western drum kit (out of shot). The music was a mix of Indian and western percussion and not something I would normally listen to, but I did listen, for the best part of an hour, and in the pouring rain, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
