He has the unique quality of adapting his performance according to the nature of the artiste he is performing with and is a star among percussion players of India. He has been playing this instrument for the past 2 decades and has enthralled both the learned and uninitiated with his virtuoso performances. He is recipient of many awards and accolades from many leading organizations and has performed in many international festivals.
