Hands Down The Best Place For Tablas and Sitars
Only store in the USA selling Indian Instruments where you can go and try before you buy. A pro player for 50 years Keshav knows his stuff. This is where all the best players go, Krishnadas, Jai Uttal, Dave Stringer, Shahid Parvez etc. This little shop in the heart of the Lower East Side is a treasure. Keshav is friendly and welcomes questions both dumb and smart. One proviso... don't wear perfume when you go there. He's allergic and does not allow customers in the store wearing fragrances.
A friend was raving about his piano tuner and I needed mine tuned. Perfect timing! He gave me Pianoland's contact info and I gave them a call right away. They sent over a professional tuner! He was timely, well prepared and and performed an amazing job! The guy is a great piano player as well! I am super grateful to my friend for the recommendation. I will definitely have this service back for the next tune up!

Their expertise is hip.hop, but you will find tons of other records from Indie stuff like MGMT to Calypso, Motown & Breakbeats. But like I said the bulk of their collection...
