Taalyogi Pandit Suresh Talwalkar     Tabla Player Profile

Taalyogi Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, is one of the greatest Tabla exponents of the present times. As an accomplished artist and as a Guru, he has contributed immensely to the glorious tradition of Indian Classical Music.

Pandit Sureshji belongs to the illustrious “Keertankar” family of Shri Dholebuva. “Keertana” being a classical form of devotional and musical discourse, a liking for the classical music was inculcated in him right in the childhood. Further, at a very young age, his father Shri Dattatray Talwalkar initiated him into the art of “Tabla”. He then took his lessons from the veteran gurus, Pt. Pandharinath Nageshkar and Pt. Vinayakrao Ghangrekar. He also learnt the intricacies of Carnatic Layashastra ( a science of rhythm ), from the renowned Mridangam player Pt. Ramnad Ishwaran. This diverse training enabled Sureshji to imbide the subtleties of both, the North and the South Indian music, transforming him into a

“solo performer” with unique expression.

Being privileged with am unparalleled talent, since the early days, Sureshji has accompanied a number of great artists in their concerts. Pt. Gajananbuva Joshi and Pt. Nivruttibuva Sarnaik are amongst those whom he accompanied the most. He gratefully regards them as gurus and attributes to them the deep insight that, he carries today for the classical music.

Sureshji introduced for the first time, the novel concept of taking vocal accompaniment and added a new dimension and direction to the solo playing of tabla.

His genius is highlighted by the exquisite renderings of “Taal Mala” and “Joad Taal”, a contribution applauded alike by connoisseurs and masses.

His unending quest for creativity and innovation, makes him a distinguished composer. His CDs like “Taal Yatra” or “Laya Kalpana” and the group concerts like “Taal Mala” and “Taal Yatra” can be cited best for the same. His compositions have influenced not only the musicians from India but also from the Western countries and today, many jazz composers seek his guidance in their musical journey.

Sureshji believes that, “Guru Shishya Parampara” is the soul of Indian classical music and he is an ardent follower of the same. As a guru, his teaching abilities and expertise is unmatched.

Today, amongst the best tabla players in the newer generation, majority are his disciples. Under his guidance, they have attained a proficiency, equally high, whether in the solo playing or, in the accompaniment for vocal, instrumental music and Kathak dance.
