Yet another milestone for the Penang Tabla Society!

The Penang Tabla Society has once again engraved its name into the Malaysian Book of Records by playing tabla continuously for 32 hours at the Thanneermalai Sree Balathandayuthapani Temple.

Playing for 32 hours straight is an incredible feat, and it must have taken a lot of preparation and hard work from the members of the Penang Tabla Society. The fact that they were able to sustain their playing for such a long period of time is a testament to their dedication and passion for their music.

A total of 80 tabla players, along with 300 bhajans (devotional) singers, guitarists, and keyboardists took turns to play non-stop, with an alternate team of 10-15 people taking over every 90 minutes.

Spearheaded by the Penang Tabla Society, they have been promoting the performing arts of tabla and other classical Indian music by organizing classes, music events, and music festivals.

Speaking about their outstanding achievements, in 2015, the Tabla society hosted the “Largest & Longest Tabla” playing an event at the Fort Cornwallis in conjunction with the Georgetown Festival then. They managed to secure a place in the Malaysian Book of Records in 2015.

Congratulations, and a special thanks for showing your commitment to preserving and promoting traditional Indian music and culture.
