Suphala - Unwind You

Suphala - Unwind You

Tabla Artist, Composer, and Producer, Suphala:

In Feb. 2005, Suphala made history when she became the first musician to play in public in Kabul since the fall of the Taliban. According to the New York Times, "Kabul's badly depleted music scene received a welcome injection of excitement last week with the arrival of Suphala, the New York-based tabla player and composer… Suphala certainly brought brightness… her touch and rhythm are sure." It caused a sensation in the war-torn country. "I have not played with a woman before," one Afghan tabla master said. "Our grandfathers do not even know of it."
