After numerous shows in Manhattan, Talavya returns to New York City to play in Brooklyn for the first time at Brooklyn Raga Massive in its trio edition. Lightning fast finger play, split-second perfection, and charisma come together for an electrifying rhythmic ride with tabla ensemble Talavya. Composed by rhythm maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil, Talavya pays homage to hundreds of years of tradition and India’s rhythmic prowess, while invigorating the art of tabla with energy, creating scores of new fans for Indian classical percussion and tabla music.
Ambassadors for Indian percussion, Talavya has performed across the world and shared the stage with artists such as Mickey Hart (of Grateful Dead), Shakura S’Aida, Sidi Toure, and Cuban Fire. Past performances include: Percussive Arts Society International Convention, Ciudad de las Ideas (TEDlike event in Mexico), Blue Frog Mumbai, California Worldfest, Chico World Music Festival, Chicago Cultural Center, INK Conference (formerly TEDIndia), and more.
