About the CD

One of the finest Tabla Players of our time Padmashree Pandit Kishan Maharaj was born on the auspicious day of Sri Krishna Janamashtami in the year 1923 in the holy city of Varanasi. His tutelage began under the guidance of his father Pandit Hari Maharaj. However due to his untimely death his training was taken over by his uncle Pt. Kanthe Maharaj, Pt. Kanthe Maharaj was one of the great old masters and himself a disciple of Pt. Baldeo Sahai whose grandfather was the founder of the Benaras Gharana. His musical journey began when he started accompanying some principal artistes of the day even at the tender age of eleven. Throughout his career he has displayed immense versatility by playing any kind of accompaniment be it with the sitar, Sarod Dhrupad Dhamar or Dance. He has accompanied legends like Pt. Ravi Shankar Ustar Ali Akbar Khan Ustad Vilayat Khan, Sitaradevi and Birju Maharaj. His Tala vadya Kacheri with the Mridangam Vidwan, Palghat Raghu is simply incomparable. Today Pt.

He has created his own distinctive style which the Tabla world follows.
