Samir Chatterjee

Pandit Samir Chatterjee studied tabla initially with Amalesh Chatterjee, and later with Shyamal Bose, so that he is able to combine the styles of both the Rampur and the Farrukhabad gharanas represented by his teachers. Samir has performed and recorded widely with many of India’s leading musicians, and is currently based in New York, where he has extended his performances to include jazz and dance collaborations. He is the Founder-Director of Chhandayan, an organization working in Calcutta, New York, and Washington D.C. to promote and preserve Indian music and culture.
