tabla is a facinating instrument. i happen to LOVE indian music so it wasn't a difficult decision when i found an advertisement for an instructor. its a very technical instrument. you don't just hit the skins. its really hard to get the right technique. also the music theory behind it is also very difficult.
but you can definitely shred. check these out

A lot of live Radiohead clips show one or more of the members using the shaky eggs. Idioteque and Paranoid Android are examples.

definiatly look into getting a Djembe. Man i love there tone.

Side note: I always have wanted to start an all acoustic band where all the drummer had was a Djembe with maybe something else mounted (cowbell? idk) then walk around downtown and play for people. That kinda stuff is really quite a blast
