Yogesh Samsi is one of those rare tabla players whose reputation has been built on his consummate artistry in both fields of accompaniment and solo playing. The son of the renowned vocalist Pandit Dinkar Kaikini, Yogesh Samsi was initiated into tabla by his father at the tender age of four, and later received guidance under Pandit H.Taranath Rao. However it was under the gifted tutelage of the legendary Ustad Alla Rakha that Yogesh received intense training for twenty-three years and, matured into a fine young tabla player.

Yogesh has accompanied almost all of he top ranking instrumentalists, vocalists and dancers of India, including Ustad Vilayat Khan, Pt Dinkar Kaikini, Pt Bhimsen Joshi, Pt Shivkumar Sharma, Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Pt Birju Maharaj.

Apart from accompaniment, Yogesh has performed numerous memorable solo performances in India and abroad. He has also had the privilege of accompanying his teacher Ustad Alla Rakha and his son the great maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain in their solo tabla recitals.

In addition to performing, Yogesh has a sound scholastic approach to the learning of tabla and has conducted successful workshops in world music centers in India, U.S.A, U.K, South Africa, Australia and Japan. Yogesh is a highly respected & intuitive teacher. His syllabus for learning tabla, designed specifically for teachers in the West, will undoubtedly serve to promote the advancement of tabla studies worldwide.

With the ever-growing influences of modern and fusion music, Yogesh Samsi still strives to keep up his revered Guru's word of preserving the tradition in the presentation of tabla solo.

Yogesh Ji will be accompanied on harmonium by Tanmay Deochake , a young lion of Classical Indian Music & World Fusion, whose Bio appears below.
