Jim Feist
"Feist starts a flurry on the tabla. Even without
any accompaniment, his polyrhythmic notes are
almost too much to fathom."

audience"

"The work sample is a well recorded, clearly narrated performance that reminded me of an absolutely galvanizing late
night recital among the cognoscenti more than 34 years ago in Bombay, of one of India's leading tabla masters. His
playing is strong and powerful with real authority in both his left and right hands. And given the homogenization of
styles in Indian music in recent decades, his project of documenting one tradition-at the same time as being able to
demonstrate a rich anthology of repertoire from diverse tabla gharanas, as he does so well in his CD-has merit as well"

For years Jim has relied on the accuracy, flexibility, and sonic detail of  Oktava
microphones and Presonus preamps , and is now glad to be a part of the
"
Oktava USA"  and "Presonus" families.
