Anindo Chatterjee

Simply put, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee is the world�s greatest solo tabla
player, and one of the greatest tabla players of all time. Nobody in
recent times had done more to advance the technique and repertoire of solo
tabla. In doing so, he has shown what the future of solo tabla is.

Deeply grounded in the profound tradition and repertoire of solo tabla,
Pandit Anindo Chatterjee has used his peerless imagination and flawless
technique to go deeper and further than anyone else. The core moods of
solo tabla are presented with rare depth and understanding, and new moods,
that were previously unattainable, have been created. Together with Ustad
Zakir Hussain, and building on the monumental work of pioneers such us
Ustad Ahmedjan Thirakwa and Ustad Kermatullah Khan, Panidt Anindo
Chatterjee will be remembered for setting the standard for modern tabla

Pandit Anindo Chatterjee was trained for over thrity years by one of the
great musical minds of the 20th century, Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh. At the
age of five, after winning a music competition at All India Radio, Pandit
Jnan Prakash Ghosh was stunned by his precocity and invited him to become
his disciple. That began one of the longest continuous relationships
between a tabla guru and disciple in modern times. Pandit Jnan Prakash
Ghosh was the most revered tabla teacher in Bengal having trained Pandit
Kanai Datta and Pandit Shankar Ghosh. Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh was also
amongst greatest tabla composers of the twentieth century and unparalleled
in his knowledge of tabla repertoire.

Ramesh Mishra

Ramesh Mishra�s rock steady rhythm, accuracy of intonation, and sweetness
of tone make him one of the worlds leading sarangi players. His choice of
nagma always sets the mood perfectly for tabla solo. These qualities have
made him the favorite sarangi player for nearly every tabla player,
including luminaries such as Anindo Chatterjee and Swapan Chaudari.

Ramesh Mishra was born in Banaras is 1947 but has spent most of his life
in Calcutta. He was trained in the Banaras style by his father Ram Nath
Mishra, and was also influenced by his uncle, the legendary Pandit Gopal
Mishra, and Gopal Mishra�s brother Hanuman Prasad Mishra.
