Pandit Anindo Chatterjee

Category Percussion | Tags Tabla



Pandit Anindo Chatterjee is one of the most accomplished tabla players of the modern age, known for breathtaking speed and extraordinary clarity of stroke. Aged five he became All India Radio's youngest performing artist, and soon after entered the gurukul to train under Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh. He studied with his guru for three decades, learning the intricate grammar of the Farukhabad gharana before branching out to others.

His long career has included accompaniment slots with almost all top Hindustani artists, including a long association with Pandit Nikhil Banerjee. Today he plays a gharana-blending style that balances traditionalism with modern freedoms, building on the open-minded approach of his guru. Outside performance he is a respected teacher, researcher, and tabla maker.
