So I've been playing Tabla since I was in 4th grade and I know most of the stuff about it and how to play it (like the Thekas and the Relas and the Kaaydas and all the other good stuff. I learned to play the Tabla under two teachers but they never taught me or anyone how to play the Tabla on some song or how to create your own composition using it.
I searched on the Internet and unfortunately because it is not that famous instrument in the world I found very little information on it. The thing which I found is that if you want to play the Tabla on some song then you first have to know the time signature of it and then have to choose the Theka which best fits/supports/describes the song. But I guess this information is not that useful if I wanna make my own composition. I guess you can create your own Theka for any price of music but I may be wrong. I have a group of musical instrument players and what we wanna do is to kind of convert any western melodious song to the Indian version of it. Take for example the music of Hans Zimmer. So if anyone provide information on how to do it or give a site or reference to any information on the Web or anywhere else I can find, that would be helpful.
