His work flows with the sound of modern music, while retaining the classical essence and richness of the tabla tradition. One of his composing specialties is his contemporary tabla ensembles.

Each ensemble’s music is customized to the artists performing it. The mood and impact of these works strikes a chord with audiences, including those who don’t traditionally listen to pure classical tabla.
