Re: Asian instruments

i've read about talvin singh using electronic tablas that he plays
standing up. anybody have any idea what these are - wave drums or
trigger pads? talvin singh also toured with björk after her first album
- there's a bootleg around which illustrates his playing in a live
context quite well. he's also played out with squarepusher recently.

i also know that ansuman biswas mixes electronics with tablas and other
indian percussion - is this the same guy as kingsuk biswas?

-the man cable-
