This is a great tabla animation. You can watch it several times and you will see something different each time. What I really also appreciate is the detailed description on the production of the animation. Ed kindly gives us the tabla kaida in writing which he learned from Pandit Suresh Talwalkar in Pune.
That was: 2 hours of planning, 16 sheets of paper with a 5×5 grid, 1 pencil, 1 eraser, 4 hours of set up, 6 takes (on 2 different tunings), 4 videos, 13 photographs, 3 hours of photoshopping and 4 hours of video editing (punctuated by fits of giggling everytime the toy autorickshaw explodes).
