Yogesh Samsi and Dhruba Ghosh

Yogesh Samsi
Recognized internationally as a leading tabla artist, Yogesh Samsi exhibits consummate artistry both as a soloist and accompanist. The son of the renowned vocalist Late Pandit Dinkar Kaikini, Yogesh was initiated into tabla by his father at the tender age of four, and later received guidance under Pandit H.Taranath Rao and intensive training under the legendary Ustad Allah Rakha.

His style is marked by an unmatched combination of power, sensitivity, knowledge of tradition, tonal clarity, and aesthetics.

Yogesh has played with many of the top ranking classical instrumentalists, vocalists and dancers of India, featured in many of the world’s most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Theatre de la Ville in Paris, the Sydney Opera House, and the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, to name a few.


Outside of the authentic tradition that he carries forward, Yogesh also embraces collaboration with artists for sounds that fuse music from various world music traditions. In this spirit, he has performed with artists including Taufiq Qureshi, Ranjit Barot, Louis Banks, Shujaat Khan, Karsh Kale, Kayhan Kalhor, and many more.


Yogesh is a member of the advisory board for the music department at Pune University, the Saaz School of Music London, and is a chief advisor for educational activities and promotion of Indian Classical music for the reputed music organisation, Darbar, in London.

Dhruba Ghosh
One of the foremost sarangi soloists of our time, Dhruba Ghosh is the son of late Pandit Nikhil Gosh, an icon of the tabla. Ghosh trained on vocals and the tabla under his father but eventually followed his own path, pioneering the sarangi as a soloist rather than playing the instrument traditionally as an accompanying instrument.
Dhrubab Ghosh’s experimentations have led him to collaborate with the Paul Winter Consort. Their album, Miho - Journey to the Mountains, won a Grammy in 2010
