Shashank Subramanyam

Shashank has propelled the Bamboo flute into an enviable position by his playing techniques of which “the multi flute transposed fingering technique” and “the dual octave production” have won him world acclaim.

Satyajit Talwalkar is one of the most sought after young tabla players in India.  Satyajit received the training from his father Suresh Talwalkar, a famous tabla player and a mentor to many young percussionists. Satyajit’s mother, Padma Talwalkar, is an eminent vocalist of the ’70s generation.For Satyajit, the trills in vocal khyal music are a major influence and they could date back to the time of his playing fusion music with figures like Louis Banks or Trilok Gurtu.He has obviously looked upon his father Suresh as his major source of inspiration. Yet he also acknowledges the abiding influence of Zakir Hussain on him.
