Joe Culley and I have been friends for a long time. I’ve always admired his musical adventurouseness , his creative spirit and his dedication to the tabla. I’m looking forward to hanging out with him on Wednesday’s show.
Joe’s percussion journey began at age nine when he saw Ustad Allah Rahka and Ravi Shankar. He didn’t begin any formal training until his freshman year in High School after being tenaciously motivated upon hearing the marching band during a football game. The core of the travels began playing drum set taking him down the path of many musical genre ranging from hardcore punk, classic rock, Latin, Jazz, Funk, Country, Celtic, Folk, Bluegrass and Gospel. After more than thirty years he decided to let drum set be put aside to focus his newfound percussive love of tabla drums of India
For the past 18 years Joe has been focusing his percussive heart upon the tabla. This magical transcendental journey has been blessed with guidance and education with many great stalwarts of tabla. https://www.ohio-tabla.com
