Learn to Play > Lesson 16: Prabhupada Mrdanga Lesson

Introduction

I have mentioned earlier that Prabhupada once taught the Mrdanga, and that was recorded. Let's take a break now and listen to that recording.

In the very beginning of the tape, Prabhupada is teaching ti and ta. However, bear in mind, as I once explained, Prabhupada didn't use our "Balarama Mrdanga style of mrdanga mantras." So on this tape, you will hear Prabhupada using more traditional Bengali names for the mrdanga strokes.

So if you're ready, then let's go!
