From an engineer and dancer, I’ve turned into a tabla student and am training to become a professional classical tabla player in a male-dominated field. For a while I turned on the blinders with tabla, but my world has just re-expanded and come back to encompass all that I did before and more. I’m an artist manager, business owner, and champion for Indian arts. I’m a proud woman of tabla, playing with Taalika – the only female tabla ensemble and also tour with Talavya (as their harmonium player), whom I manage.
Born in the West, I’ve lived in the East and now move back and forth between them both. As I seek to understand the world through sound, I write about my world through various lens. While my world primarily consists of music and philosophy, I also love to bake, and am still an environmental engineer at heart.
All thoughts have rhythm. Here is where I write them.
