Aditya Kalyanpur (Tabla)

One of India’s leading percussive instruments, the tabla has, through the process of providing accompaniment, played a vital role in shaping the presentation of Hindustani vocal music, instrumental music and Kathak dance. Although traditionally the tabla players were expected to take on the role of merely providing a rhythmic accompaniment to all types of music and dance, in recent times the tabla players have had scope to play a more active and creative role, thus lending a new dimension to the aesthetics of the overall presentation. As a result, today, the tabla player is recognized as an integral part of a performance.

In this regard, the contribution made by Zakir Hussain, the internationally renowned tabla maestro, is indeed unique. His trend-setting work across the world with numerous artistes from diverse traditions such Indian classical, semi-classical and light music, Jazz, World music etc., has given a new direction and meaning to the art of rhythmic accompaniment, going beyond the vocabulary and expressions conventionally used in the Indian classical music.

In this musical performance, the inimitable master along with his father’s disciples Aditya Kalyanpur and Navin Sharma, will present solo pieces as well as perform with a gamut of practitioners of classical and semi-classical music.
