Music

“Remember,  information is not knowledge,  knowledge is ?not wisdom,  wisdom is not truth,  truth is not beauty,  beauty is not love,  love is not music,  music is the best.” Frank Zappa

To me, music is the language of the heart.

I’ve been playing music all my life. I studied piano starting when I was 6 years old and I kept on learning and playing all my life. Today my main instruments are Tabla, Djembe, and Didgeridoo. Drumming and percussion are my passion but I also sing, play some Bansuri Flute and I still love keyboards.

Check the media section for some audio and video material.

There is something that music does that nothing else can… I’ve had the privilege to be in the presence and played with several great musicians when the “muse” touched us. That’s when we are lifted out of our day-to-day experience into something magical that reminds of the depth and beauty of our existence.

Since the middle of 2010, I am joined up with the Dhwani Academy of Percussion Music which was founded by my long-term friend,  teacher,  and amazing tabla master Pandit Abhijit Banerjee.
