Name: Alok Verma
Field: Tabla & Percussions
Address: 94, District Road, Wembley, England . HA0 2LG
Misc. Info: If I had to put a date to my musical journey- it probably began in the womb. My mother, Meena Chhunchha is a singer and I don't doubt that the first notes that slipped into my pre-natal consciousness were her's. She and my father, Harish Chhunchha were my greatest inspiration and I fed on the creative expression that was innate to them. As a 2 year old, I would follow my father into tabla class and during these wanderings discovered my natural inclination to the instrument. This inclination turned into a passion and at the age of 7 I became the disciple of Shri Divyang Vakil in Ahmedabad, (student of Maestro Ustaad Allah Rakhaa) and later continued instruction under Shri Sudhirkumar Saxena from Baroda. For me this meant devoting a minimum of 7 hours daily, for the next 12 years! It has since helped me carve a niche for myself in this beautiful world of music. Although training was rigorous, it was a 12 year buzz. At 8, I had my first public performance with mum and by 13, I was working with All India Radio on numerous recordings.
