The term tabla is derived from an Arabic word, tabl, which simply means 'drum'. The tabla is a membranophone percussion instrument which are often used in Hindustani classical music. A tabla maestro can produce an impressive range of sounds that few percussive instruments can. It's also one of the most popular percussions used in Indian dance.
