A video clip showing his ease while playing the percussion instrument effortlessly has gone viral on social media, having garnered almost 72,000 views since being posted.
In the video, the boy, seemingly three or four years of age and dressed up in his school uniform, plays various forms of Tabla. A person who seems to be recording the little boy asks him to play various folk forms representing Pakistan’s four provinces Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The boy finally stops by saying, “No more, my arms have started hurting now”.
Netizens couldn’t help but heap praises on the talented boy for his zeal and fervour towards the Tabla instrument.
Little man has got some skills, well done young man. The guy who is recording doing a great job but could have used a bit more kinder and soft tone with the little master— Peshawar khan 🇵🇰🇬🇧 (@Humbleguy6) October 6, 2019
