Aditya Kalyanpur on Tabla (Indian Drums)

About

Bio

 

With Aditya Kalyanpur’s trademark blend of technical brilliance, creative improvisations and high-octane showmanship, this award-winning tabla virtuoso’s performances instantly connect with, and captivate audiences worldwide. Kalyanpur is noted to be coined as the original pioneer of recreating the colorful tabla, thus innovating, “a more colorful expression.”

 

At the same time, Kalyanpur’s performances reflect his versatility and keenness to break through conventional ‘borders.’ Kalyanpur has uniquely gone on to acquire in-depth knowledge across various gharanas and schools of playing. Furthermore, he is in his element when adapting masterfully to any musical context, be it complementing a sitar or jazz guitar, and/or collaborating with artistes across genres, from jazz to pop, rap to rock!


Hailed by many in the western world as “the rightful heir to Punjab Gharana,” *Aditya’s colossal repertoire, and his signature style of bold execution of syllables and pinpoint-precise rhythm, are founded in rigorous study and knowledge. For the child prodigy who could replicate intricate rhythmic patterns on his first tabla at the age of 3, there was no going back. Kalyanpur’s training began from none other than the legendary late Ustad Allah Rakha.
