Pt. Sankha Chatterjee

Hailed as one of the foremost tabla maestro’s of India, Pt. Shanka Chatterjee was born in a highly cultured family of musicians. He inherited music from his father Dr. Jogendra Nath Chatterjee, a distinguished vocality as well as a medical practitioner.

He studied under the tutelage of great maestros like Late Ustad Maseet Khan, Late Ustad Keramatullah Khan and Late Ustad Alla Rakha Khan in Guru Shishya Parampara.
