Third Thursdays: Bhajanpreet Singh Kohli
Bhajanpreet Singh Kohli has been playing the tabla, a drum from the Indian subcontinent, since he was four years old. Primarily self-taught, he has taken lessons from various teachers, including Jagjit Singh Soni, a student of Allah Rakha and the current world record holder of the longest drum solo (110 hours). Kohli's inspirations in tabla are Soni, Allah Rakha, Zakir Hussain, Sukhvinder Pinky Singh, and Tari Khan.
Kohli's piece will begin with a brief introduction to the tabla and Indian classical music, followed by a few basic bols (notes) and compositions. Then, Kohli will play a few contemporary compositions and end with a classical duet, accompanied by Indervir Singh on Sitar.
This exciting performance series falls on the third Thursday of each month and features student performers who work in a variety of media, including music, comedy, and spoken word. It’s a great way to spend an evening with your friends and to experience the exceptional talent of UM students. This series is curated and produced by UMMA’s Student Programming and Advisory Board.
