Growing up in a world of music and tabla, for Rushi, son of Pandit Divyang Vakil, music runs in his blood. Formally training in tabla for over 20 years and teaching himself keyboard for over 10 years, he has great understanding of Indian and Western music styles. Rushi has been a music director and composer for commercial CDs and documentaries as well as his own world fusion band Taan.
Rushi has performed as a tabla artist in many countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, Belgium and Hong Kong. He is the group leader for Pandit Divyang Vakil’s contemporary classical tabla ensemble Talavya (for the compositions Tabla Ecstasy, and Power of Tabla) and the half-beat taal tabla ensemble Ardha Taal Chakravyuha.
