Maestro Purbayan Chatterjee (Sitar)

Maestro Satyajit Talwalkar (Tabla)

Satyajit Talwalkar is the son of tabla legend Pandit Suresh Talwalkar and Padma Talwalkar, two of the best-known practitioners of Indian classical music. Right from a very young age, Satyajit received immaculate attention and training from his parents in various aspects of Indian classical music. But his interest in percussion was nurtured by his father, one of the most revered teacher and practitioner of the art of tabla playing. In following his father’s footsteps, Satyajit has become a masterful accompanist to instrumental and vocal music. But he is also recognized as a solo artist, and is at ease in performing as a member of taal vadya kacheri (ensemble of Indian percussionists) and his duets with Western drum ensemble have received critical acclaim.

He has accompanied major Hindustani artists including Pt hariprasad Chaurasia, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan,Ustad Rashid Khan (vocal), Ustad Shaheed Parvez (sitar) and has performed all over India. He has also been on concert tours of France, Netherlands, USA, and several countries of South Asia.
