ABOUT

The Festival of Tabla™ (FOT) is a musical tapestry woven with threads of tradition and innovation. As the largest gathering of Indian Classical musicians on the West Coast, it's more than a festival - it's a cultural symphony. We've set a global stage where Tabla solos resonate alongside instrumental virtuosos, vocal maestros, and mesmerizing dance pieces. Here, rising talents share the spotlight with seasoned artists, creating a melodic mosaic, where every note tells a story. From India to the U.S., exceptional artists converge at the Festival where an unbiased platform provides for fresh voices to echo throughout the ages. The experience is beyond the music, and more about building bridges. FOT uplifts artists, fostering a vibrant sense of belonging, because it's not just about the performances, it's about weaving connections within the world music and arts community. 

The Festival of Tabla™ (FOT) is brought to you by The Ravi & Shashi Bellare Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Charitable non-profit organization (EIN: 33-0550765), located in Chino Hills California. http://www.ravishashiarts.org

I've never seen anything like this in all my 50+ years of performing around the World.
It's unique and everyone should support it!
