He has performed and recorded with some of India’s leading tabla (drums) players, including Swapan Chaudhuri, Zakir Hussain and Anindo Chatterjee, and has also been at the vanguard of various cultural crossover projects. For this program, he will be accompanied by the dynamic Nitin Mitta, one of the most accomplished tabla players of his generation.
