  Tabla - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The tabla is a widely popular South Asian percussion instrument used in the classical, popular and religious music of the northern Indian subcontinent.
The transformation of the tabla from a religious-folk instrument to a more sophisticated instrument of art-music occurred in the late 18th or early 19th centuries, when significant changes took place in the feudal court music of North India.
The tabla has also become a popular fusion instrument and is found in performance and recordings of an array of musical styles from traditional forms such as flamenco to cutting edge electronica.
