My name is Ashwin Marathe and I’m a senior at Bentonville High School. I have been learning Tabla for three years from Shri Ashvin Mistry Ji and Shri Suryaksha Desphande Ji. At Ra-Ve, I’m working to create a Tabla Class for children and young adults to learn how to play Tabla. I enjoy playing Tabla because it gives me a new medium to be creative and imaginative. I want to bring more members of our community into the world of Tabla so that they too can experience the joy of playing and learning a new art form.
