Dhananjay Daithankar also learned tabla from G.L. Samant in Pune. Learning rhythm helps especially when playing a percussive instrument like the santoor.
DubNP 9:42:24 AM
So good.
Sangeet Team (host) 9:43:28 AM
Good morning, DubNP. I'm glad you are appreciating the music.
DubNP 9:50:42 AM
Every Saturday.
Sangeet Team (host) 9:53:12 AM
When did you first discover WPRB and Sangeet, DubNP?
DubNP 10:00:58 AM
I grew up about 45 minutes southeast of Princeton. Was lucky to have an older brother who was into punk, reggae, jazz, hip hop. Etc. We would skateboard inside garages on cold snowing winter days as very young kids waiting for the next new band to come on. I can remember listening to this show while sitting the in passenger seat of my brothers Camaro. Haha. I had to be 12 or so. I am 45 now.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:04:06 AM
Wow! That goes back to nearly the beginning - Sangeet started in 1986.
DubNP 10:06:43 AM
Was the show on Sundays?
Sangeet Team (host) 10:08:28 AM
Yes, for a while it was.
DubNP 10:11:20 AM
In my memory it was our trips running errands on Sunday morning. This show has been great. Thanks you.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:13:01 AM
It's gratifying to hear from longtime Sangeet listeners. So we know our efforts are worthwhile.
PADMA GANESH 11:16:31 AM
