Debjit Patitundi

Category Percussion | Tags Tabla



Debjit Patitundi is a young tabla maestro. He took up the instrument aged four, learning first under his father Amal Patitundi and then from his father’s guru Pandit Shankha Chaterjee. Their fruitful decade spent as guru-shishya (master-student) saw Debjit win various competitions, including All India Radio's 2009 Tabla competition, and appear frequently on national TV.

He soon became one of All India Radio’s youngest ‘A’ grade Hindustani percussionists, and recently has represented his country internationally, travelling to Spain as part of an Indian cultural delegation and making his London debut in 2018. Debjit currently receives advanced instruction from eclectic maestro Pandit Subhankar Banerjee.
