Josh embarked on his musical career at the age of four receiving training in western classical, jazz on piano and bass in New York City from some of the most accomplished musicians and has performed in prestigious concert halls such as the Lincoln Center and Alice Tully Hall.  In his teens, Josh fell in love with Hindustani Classical Instrumental Music and shifted his focus to sitar and continued to pursue his bachelor’s degree from New England Conservatory.

Josh is a student of the Maihar Gharana and pursued his interest with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan as well as Ustad Aashish Khan and Sri Alam Khan. Josh is also proficient in playing tablas. 

Josh has travelled extensively internationally giving concert tours. Josh has performed with most of the eminent tabla artists in the world including Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri, Pt. Anindo Chatterjee, Pt Kumar Bose. He has been hailed as the torchbearer for Pt. Nikhil Banerjee of the Maihar Gharana.

Accompanying on tabla is Vivek Pandya. Vivek was naturally inclined towards the tabla at a young age, due to early exposure to music from his family.  His uncle and father learnt Indian classical music and used to regularly practice at home.  Slowly, Vivek’s uncle, (Viral Pandya) set his hand onto the tabla.  As time went on, Vivek’s father (Kalpit Pandya) took firm interest into a musical future.  At the age of 5, Vivek was accepted as a disciple of the world renowned maestro, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee.  This journey has been continuing to date.  

 Vivek has been regarded as a tabla prodigy who can carry the legacy of the maestros to date, accompanying renowned young artists and respected musicians all around the globe, in Mumbai Pune, Kolkotta, Bangalore, solapur, NY, NJ, Phoenix, Texas, Delaware and more.  He has currently two albums to his name, one with santoor player, Vinay Desai called Chidaksha. He also featured in an album called 20 for 20, along with NY philharmonic member, Yale University and Juilliard Grad, Inbal Segev.  He has been awarded to conduct an extra mural lecture series under MSU university in Baroda twice.  To spread the legacy and culture of Indian Classical Music, Vivek has started to teach a few young students, who will be the future of this great art.
