Vivek was naturally inclined towards the tabla at a young age, due to
early exposure to music from his family. His uncle and father learnt Indian classical music and used to regularly practice at home. Slowly, Vivek’s uncle, (Viral Pandya) set his hand onto the tabla. As time went on, Vivek’s father(Kalpit Pandya) took firm interest in a musical future. At the age of 5, Vivek was accepted as a disciple of the world renowned maestro, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee. This journey has been continuing to date.
Vivek Pandya has been regarded as a tabla prodigy who can carry the legacy of the maestros to date, accompanying renowned young artists and respected musicians all around the globe, in Mumbai Pune, Kolkata, Bangalore, solapur, NY, NJ, Phoenix, Texas, Delaware and more.
