A top disciple of Ravi Shankar, he has received many honors including the prestigious Padma Shri, the Sangeet Natak Academy Award, and a Grammy® for Best World Music Album for his collaboration with Ry Cooder. He is joined by the brilliant tabla player Subhen Chatterjee, a disciple of Swapan Chaudhuri, who has performed with many of India’s major artists, including Bhimsen Joshi, Girija Devi, V. G. Jog and Pandit Jasraj. He also created the fusion bands Karma and Friends of Drums (with Sivamani).
