TABLA PLAYER | COMPOSER | EDUCATOR
Sandeep Das leads a prolific international musical career characterized by tradition, innovation, and a passion for spreading love and joy.
Das is one of the unique Indian Classical Musicians to actively seek a new context for his instrument– since his debut concert with Ravi Shankar at the age of 17, he has gone on to perform with iconic artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and Paquito D’Rivera at prestigious venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to the Royal Albert Hall. Performances for significant events such as the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics and the 150th anniversary of the United Nations have established him as a highly sought-after performer all over the globe.
Das frequently visits top institutions as an artist in residence and has composed several pieces that have received international acclaim.
“Where the Soul Never Dies” is the debut album of the Sandeep Das / Mike Block Duo, exploring the uncharted musical space of tabla and cello.
The music comes from the joy that we experience while respecting and surrendering to each other’s musical heritages. The result is a genre-crossing repertoire that brings listeners on an unforgettable auditory adventure.
Raw, organic, eclectic and soulful dialogue”
