Montreal tabla virtuoso Shawn Mativetsky releases new solo album


Earlier this year, McGill percussion faculty member Shawn Mativetsky released Rivers, a traditional Indian classical solo tabla album – making him the first Quebec-based artist to do so. Featuring George Koller on dilruba, the disc features traditional repertoire from North India passed onto Mativetsky by his tabla teacher (or Guru).

Hailed as an "exceptional soloist" by critic Réjean Beaucage, Mativetsky continues to explore the relationship between Western and Indian classical music. This release is not to be missed!
