Tabla Star Loren Oppenheimer Returns to Charlottesville
Loren Oppenheimer, originally from Charlottesville, Virginia, left almost 10 years ago to follow a dream and learn in the true style of Indian Classical Music as a committed and sincere disciple of Pandit Divyang Vakil. Loren is a tabla soloist and accompanist for music and Kathak dance and a member of the tabla ensembles Tabla Upaj and Tabla Triveni, which have performed throughout the US. And until now he has been a full time teacher at the Taalim School of Indian Music, which he helped to start with his Guru Pandit Divyang Vakil.
Loren decided to return to Charlottesville to spread the gift of Indian Music and open the Virginia Branch of the Taalim School. Loren returned recently to Cville to perform at the Indian Cultural Center on the UVA Grounds as a soloist and as an accompaniast to the Rhythm Riders Ensemble, Tabla Ecstasy, on their Tabla Tour around the United States.
Loren has been a friend to Monkeyclaus and has recorded many times with Monkeyclaus Engineer and Producer Abel Okugawa. We decided to share some of these recordings here. Loren is currently looking for students interested in learning the art of Tabla. Please contact him at lorenoppenheimer [@] yahoo.com, 434-882-1310 .
Forever (2.5 MiB, 422 hits)
