Tabla, Composer

Tabla virtuoso Sandeep Das is one of the few Indian classical musicians to have collaborated with major symphony orchestras, string quartets, and jazz musicians. Das is the founder of HUM (Harmony and Universality through Music), which promotes global understanding through performance and education, and provides learning opportunities and scholarships for young, specially-abled artists to empower them to lead self-reliant lives. Das is trained in the centuries-old Indian tradition of Guru-Shishya Parampara, studying and living with his Guru—Pandit Kishan Maharaj—and learning and practicing music as a way of life, more than just an art form. Sandeep has been an artist in residence at universities including Dartmouth, Brandeis, UC Santa Barbara, Santa Clara University, College of the Holy Cross, Juilliard School, Berklee College of Music, and UC British Columbia.
