Ravi Padmanabha

Ravi Padmanabha is a percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, improviser/composer. His initial interest was in drum set which later led to a variety of world instruments. From an early age, Ravi was exposed to Indian Classical music. At age 18, he began his formal Tabla studies with Pandit Ananda Gopal, and later with Pandit Samar Saha of Calcutta.

While living in Buffalo Ravi spent many years performing in a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, world, and experimental music.
