He was nurtured and seasoned for Tabla playing by eminent Indian gurus like Shri Arjun Rai, Pandit Anand Gopal Bandopadhyay and Pandit Sameer Chatterjee. He also received valuable guidance from Late Pandit Shyamal Bose. He represents both Banaras and Farrukkhabad Gharanas. At a very young age, he carved a niche for himself and is regarded as one of the most talented percussionists in India. His playing is signified by the authenticity of the Gharanas he represents, clarity and dignity to the ‘bols’, his complete control over ‘Laya’, and a good understanding of the underlying complexities of ‘Taal’ and ‘Laya’. His repertoire is rich and varied, indeed. Winner of many prestigious contests, he also has a Master’s Degree in Music (percussion). He has also participated several times in the ‘National Programme of Music’ on AIR as well as on Doordarshan (Indian T.V. channels). He has conducted workshops as well as ‘Lecture Demonstrations, covering various topics on music especially the Indian rhythm and related aspects of the art of Tabla playing.

His solo performances and Jugalbandi concerts including the Carnatic percussionists have been greatly admired and applauded by critics and connoisseurs. Of late, his exploration with fusion music has turned out to be one more feather in his cap. He has worked with jazz musicians like Lewis Pragasam, Greg Lyons, and ‘Gamelan’ (group of Malaysian traditional instruments) musicians too. On invitation from the ‘Indian Council for cultural Relations (ICCR), Government of India, he has toured different places in India as well as abroad to perform and propagate the art of Tabla playing.
