Das Tabla Camp and Retreat with Sandeep Das

July 1 - July 5

NOTE: This Indian rhythm and Tabla retreat is an invitation-only event.  Please contact Matthew Bronson, the event organizer listed below, for more information.

Sandeep Das is considered one of the leading Tabla exponents in the world today. His collaboration with the Silk Road Ensemble for “Sing me Home” won the Grammy Award for the Best World Music Album. Prior to this win, he was nominated for the Grammy Award in 2005 and 2009. A professional career spanning 23 years has seen him composing and playing with the Legendary Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble, String quartets and Orchestra’s such as The New York Philharmonic, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the The Boston Symphony Orchestra to name a few.

His concerts have taken him regularly to major centers of music around the globe, some examples being Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Royce Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, The Kennedy Center and The Concertgebouw. To his credit he has 40 CD’s, three of which have been Grammy nominated.

Sandeep serves as the founder of the HUM ensemble (Harmony and Universality through Music). This is an ensemble of world-class artists whose goal is to promote global understanding through musical performance and education. HUM proudly has a National Scholarship in association with German Multinational firm Lanxess. This scholarship provides visually impaired children with the opportunity to learn Music. All costs are borne by HUM, whose scholarship outreach has doubled since its founding.

Testimonial and some press excerpts:

Yo-Yo Ma :  “Sandeep transcends his instrument – when he plays the Tabla he is a creator of myths, a master communicator and an orchestra, all in one. In my decades of collaboration around the world, he is easily one of the greatest artists I have ever met. Not only is he one of the best artists I have met but he is also once one of the best teachers I have met. I believe there is no one he cannot engage!”

New York Times: “The Breathless duet by the cellist and Sandeep Das,was a highlight of the evening. He can turn any performance into a visual spectacle.”

Washington Post: “Tarang” (Waves ) by Sandeep Das… The Jocular atmosphere evident on the players’ faces… everyone was having a good time!”

The Independent (U.K.) BBC Proms: “The Indian Tabla player Sandeep Das’ piece became the mainstay of this afternoon Prom!”

Chicago Tribune: “Sandeep Das’ awesome table playing… The sheer timbral variety he achieved on the Tabla contributed to its hypnotic effect!”

Inquirer ( Singapore): “The infectious finale, Sandeep Das’ “Tarang” ended in euphoria. The seemingly never ending applause obliged the ensemble to give three encores.”

Los Angeles Times: “Fabulous Tabla playing by Sandeep Das in a composition of his own”
