MUSIC TRAILS WITH THAALAVATHAM

The sound of trash

SOUTH INDIA - SOUTH INDIA

Montry Manuel Thaalavattam, a percussionist was born and brought up at Cochin, had the love for music since his childhood. He was influenced by his father for all his creative ways of living and love for music. He was trained by his guru Jerry Peter who instilled in him the love of drums. He later  learned  about  the  finer  nuances  of  different  drumming  styles  from  Jeoraj  Stanley.  He attributes his flexibility and comfort with different styles (reggae, samba, and Indian folk) to the grounding in basics his teachers gave him. Growing up to rock ‘n roll classics, he played in bands  that  covered  everyone  from  Pink  Floyd  to  Weather  Report.  He  also  worked  with  a renowned  Indian  band  named    “Swarathma”  for  Eight  years.  Montry  started  to  ideate  in creating  music  from  recycled  products.  Thus  Thaalavattam  was  formed  in  2009. The word Thaalavattam is derived from Malayalam (Local language of Kerala, India). It translates to "A Circle of Rhythm". Soon after this Montry quit Swarathma and started focusing full time on Thaalavattam since 2012.

NAMASTE DEAR FRIENDS!

Each journey is different for each person, and we respect that differences. That is why, we prefer speak with you before you travel with us. Kindly, fill in BOOKING FORM or send email to [email protected] and we will connect with you. 

ART OF TRAVEL (When & Where to travel?) is based on a philosophy of three words: SPIRIT (Who to meet?), STORY (What to do?), STYLE (Where to stay?). 

The price is available upon request. Rates vary depending on the time of the year and the number of people travelling, but also from your style!

Let us know:

  • when you would like to travel?

  • what are your nationalities and ages?

  • do you have a budget for your holiday?

We will send you a detailed itinerary with day by day descriptions as well as lots of tips and ideas from our local experts!


....and by the way, do write us few sentences about you! Because NAMASTE could be just a casual or formal greeting, a cultural convention or an act of worship. However, there is much more to it than meets the eye. The real meeting between people is the meeting of their minds. When we greet one another with namaste, it means, ‘may our minds meet’, indicated by the folded palms placed before the chest. The bowing down of the head is a gracious form of extending friendship in love, respect and humility. We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts with you!
