Hi Tina! I checked out your website and was very impressed! I don't know what I can add to the loads of complements I'm sure you've gotten on your music...needless to say I really appreciated the way you mixed elements of Indian and Western music. Parts of your clips reminded me of some of the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan mixes I've heard. Best wishes for the new year! A new fan, Ashok

Hello Tina, I was checking out tabla sites on the web and surfed onto your site. It's very creative and unique indeed! I downloaded one of your tracks and was very impressed with your vocals!! You obviously have plenty of talent!!!

Tina, I did a search for "tabla" on and I expected to find more tabla related artists. I checked out some of your tracks on synthesis of modern tabla have a really lovely voice and some interesting tabla integrations. I think it's dope that there are females persuing hand drum stylings in hindustani music where there looms a more masculine prescence. And of course the fusion between eastern and western styles always makes for some interesting sounds.
Your quote "The feeling of letting your fingers go crazy on the Tablas while being under strict control of the rhythm is the best" is sooooo true.

Hello to all, Kanhaiya, Geeta, Seema and Tina,
We were thinking of you recently and I happened to be searching for something when I came upon your website. It's the first time I am viewing it and remembering what a beautiful occasion Seema's wedding was in New Jersey 3 years ago! I have saved her wedding invitation, for it truly is a treasure! Seems like only yesterday.
I hope that everyone is doing well. I have such good memories from the other mehfil in New Jersey as well. Perhaps one day we will be in your company again. May God continue to bless all of you. Would love to hear from you. Lots of love.

You guys are great! I love music and most of all... the Indian classicals...both instrumental and vocal. I don't dislike light music either, but lately light music is going too vague. If you are ever visiting my area, I would love to see you on stage! I am doing research at a medical university in this part of the country. Take care and have fun. Keep doing what you do so well.

Hello, I just wanted to drop a line and express my compliments to Tina. It's interesting how I stumbled across your URL... I was searching the web for Tabla drum information with possible samples... and to my amazement there's hardly anything regarding Tabla sound samples etc... So I began Tabla music and poof! Well to my amazement I not only found an accomplished Tabla player but a beautiful one at that. I am especially moved by Tina's vocal talent! " a real shining star". Good luck in all your endeavors.

Hello Tina, I am a partner of Dr. Girnar and a long time drummer. Once played Led Zep covers during college and med school, and have actually attempted tabla rhythms in my quest to be more wordly in my drumming. Found that as you came in to join the music, was entranced by the excellence of your playing...your skill at staying with the rhythm, anticipating it solidly while going around it in crazy little patterns. Enjoyed it. best, Ken G

Dear Kanhaiya-ji, Geeta-ji and Tina, This is Kashi Batheja. The performance you gave on Saturday was very good. Tina, you did a good job on the Tabla along with the songs you sang. Did not get much time to talk to all of you though I spoke a little bit with Kanhaiya. Geeta that's a great thing you have accomplished with organizing the family to perform in the way they are doing. That shows you what is possible when you make up your mind to do it. It was nice talking to you and looking forward to meet you all sometime. Regards, Kashi.
