The newest installment of the free Pandora Podcast Series has arrived, and it’s a doozy.

The new show explores percussion instruments, and looks at how each evokes the culture from which it came. Our guest, Sameer Gupta of the Supplicants and VidyA, sets up a Brazilian samba foot pattern, Indian tabla bols, Indonesian gamelan-style gong work, and some good old-fashioned jazz drumming. You’ll hear cabasa, shekere, maracas, a tongue drum, and for good measure… sleigh bells. Sameer, by the way, is also a Pandora music analyst, and he grew up in the South Bay Area, here in California.
To hear the ‘bonus episode’ on tabla, and to see the photos and listen to all of the audio samples, check out the Episode 14 page, or head over to the main podcast page to check out all of the episodes.
As always, we welcome your comments, questions and corrections. (Corrections, you say?)
Off to see the Police tonight! Whoot!

    I am finding it difficult to hear the songs I request.I know this is a free radio station,but what's the use if you can't hear what you want to.

    Have you thought about making Pandora 24/7 listening ear implants. I can't think of one thing that I do that Pandora doesn't make better.

    I have been listening to Pandora since Monday about three hours per day. On Day one, Monday, I requested "Murder on Music Row". I heard On "The Other Hand", "One More Drink", "Pittsburgh Steelers", "The Buck Starts Here", among others at lease SIX times each. I did not hear "Murder..." until yesterday, Friday. How come it is so scarce?
