My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
I have been influenced by many artists such as Ustad Allah rakha, Ustad Zakir hussain, Pandit Yogesh samsi, TY Burhoe, Aditya Kalyanpur, Pandit Samta Prasad, etc. But my biggest inspiration will always be my tabla guru -- Ustad Akram Khan, an immaculate tabla exponent from ajrara gharana.
