Tabla Samrat Pt. Anokhelal Mishra ,performing at a live concert in the year 1957. Commonly known as Pandit Anokhelalji, he was an Indian Tablā Artist who belonged to the Banaras Gharana of Hindustani classical music.
He was called the Jadugar(wizard) of ' Na Dhin Dhin Na ' (theka of Teen Taal- 16beats) and ' Dhere Dhere Kite Taka ' (particular tabla syllables) . He used to play these and many more syllables with clarity even at extreme speed.He was exceptionally adept at fast playing ' Na Dhin Dhin Na ' with his 1st finger, something even seasoned tabla players find it impossible to achieve.
