Nathanaël van Zuilen, pakhawaj,
Dutch pakhawaj player Nathanaël van Zuilen started his Indian drumming career with Manik Munde. Later he developed his technique with Austrian pakhawaj player Helmut Waibl and Pandit Sanjay Agle in Mumbai. But the accompaniment sessions with vocalists Ustad Fariduddin Dagar and Pandit Nirmalya Dey were perhaps most revealing in discovering the secrets of balancing tala and raga in the art of dhrupad.
