The Tabla is the most popular of the Indian percussion rhythm instrument. It consists of two drums, the Bayan (big bass drum) and the Dayan and both are usually played together. Both the drums as a pair and a the Dayan on its own - as opposed to the Bayan are known as tabla. When playing, the two drums are placed on rings (Bira) which support them.
According to science learning music, and specifically the Tabla as it involves a synchronized usage of both the hands increases brain development in various regions, including the corpus callosum, motor and auditory cortexes of both brain hemispheres. It aids in kinesthetic development and coordination.
Hindustani classical music is a blend of religious, spiritual, folk & cultural expression drawing from the folk and regional songs of North India. It is based upon ragas and taals designed to affect different "chakras" (energy centers) in the path of the "Kundalini".
Main vocal traditions are Dhrupad, pure and austere, and Khayal, with romantic content and elaborate ornamentation. Light-classical varieties include Dadra, Thumri, Hori, Sawan and Chaiti.

Kathak is an Indian classical dance form and has its origin in the practice of Kathakari (storytelling), stories communicated by the travelling bards (Kathakars) via music, dance and songs.

Kathak provides the body a complete fitness workout with creativity, grace and beauty. It helps you to learn, feel & express emotions and share them with an audience during a performance. A great tonic for the mind and soul. Regular practice imparts a sense of well being in the mental, physical and transcendental planes.
