Now known as one of the greatest Tabla players in the world, he has taught music at Princeton University and Stanford, and has collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of all time. During this show, we will explore several parts of his career, from his earliest recordings with Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma to his original compositions.
