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.
