About Pranav Joshi

Pranav Joshi, an establishing tabla instructor, fell in love with the instrument at a tender age. His passion for tabla grew because of the constant encouragement of his dynamic mother, who constantly quenched his curiosity and love for the art. His fingers create magic as soon as they touch the plain surface of tabla.

The direction of once career usually shapes when one is young and sensitive to one’s inner voice and talent. Pranav discovered that his pursuit of happiness culminated in this beautiful melodious instrument,whose enthralling drum language or bols transported him into a rhythmic realm.

Having trained under the eagle eye and expertise of Taalyogi Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, Pranav soon found himself in a whirlpool of delight.
